Oh, yes. K58's. I wasn't that impressed with them as a rain tire. I had a few pucker moments with them (when compared to a Conti Zippy)...

Did you mean K58? K68s donít exist (anymore... discontinued). K58s are a big mud terrain tyre. Best rated. Best in the wet. But yeah... bit noisy. Like thatís a problem on a 2 stroke scooter?
I've run Heidenau K68's back to back with a Conti Zippy 1, and it felt (and sounded) like the heidi's were a big mud terrain tires or something. The Dunlop TT92 race slicks were even a smoother ride yet. Needless to say i probably won't be buying another set of Heidenau tires anytime soon again.
- I had a front wheel drift going about 35mph on a wet cloverleaf highway offramp.
-I used the K58's on the racetrack on a rainy day. I had HUGE front and back wheel drift with them. SO much so that I pulled out of the race two laps in. It was like I was on ice. No one else seemed to have problems with their tires that day. I had much better luck with their super gummy "rain/race" K58 version, but that tire wears out super fast.
I was thinking the same thing...who cares about a loud tire on a two stroke?...until I installed them and got a reality check. It also made the scooter vibrate enough that I though something happened to my crank. I was happy when those tires finally wore out. Others might not have the same issues with the K58's. I tend to push the limits a little more of my tires, and I expect them to perform as they're advertised.
