How about a tire named Terminator? I'd be a little uncomfortable...

Maybe one called Punctuator, or Flatulator :-)

I'd like to see one named Fornicator, or Copulator (heh heh).

What are you riding?!

I've had them on my bike for about 500 miles. Bottom line, they ride like a $20 tire. In my first 3 rides, I flatted twice. One from a huge piece of limestone on the road I didn't get out of the way from, and the other a small piece of glass. For the time I rode them, they were comfortable and plenty sticky. But for like $5-10 more a tire, you could get some Vredstein Tri-Comps. And these tires are AWESOME! That's what replaced my detonators. There is no comparison, FWIW.
