    Default Tire loan library

    Nothing like a set of premium tires to reinvigorate that old ride! Or so the marketing tells us. A tire loan thread would give list members a way to try out many different tires without dropping $100+ for a new pair. Perhaps this thread can serve as the place to post what you have available, or what you'd like to try, and users can follow up in the thread or directly to arrange loans and trades? Maybe post thumbnail reviews too.

    Continental tires for me all the way. The good handmade German ones.

    So, yeah, I'm happy to loan out tires for testing. I posted this on the other thread, but will repost my current inventory here. (I may switch back to using one of these sets, but right now these are available)

    What I have to loan:
    - Panaracer GravelKing SK 43mm
    - Panaracer GravelKing Mud 35mm
    - Schwalbe G-One Allround 40mm (aka "38c" for some reason)
    - WTB Nano 40mm

    - Right now, Compass Barlow Pass 38mm tires. (Eventually I will put these on my bike, but am happy to loan them in the meantime.)
    - At some point, I'll have Schwalbe G-One Speed 30mm tires, when I swap to the Compass (maybe)

    What I'd like to try/borrow:
    - WTB Riddler
    - WTB Resolute
    - Anything in 700x48mm size just to see if that'll clear my frame.

    I'm also intrigued by the WTB Exposure 30c or 32c. Probably I'll get a set of those to compare to my G-One Speed tires once those wear out.

    Also, I've got lots of yellow tape and am happy to tape up anyone's rims, should you wish to convert to tubeless. You would just need valve stems (or just cut the stems out of some old inner tubes) and sealant.

    I can't believe Conti still doesn't have a road tubeless offering. (Rumor has it that this may finally change next year.) I love their GP4000SII tires, but I like tubeless more. (I'd definitely buy a set of tubeless GP4000SII tires, though, if they were to make them.)
