So , I went to that Web site .

Very informative on all points , except prices .

And yes !

From the information on the Web site , it seems that they might possibly be happy to make up some custom ordered tires !

I knew about these tires only from the past "Bicycle Classics" flyers .

Am I correct in remembering something like $ 100.00 to $ 150.00 per each tire ?
