Reading Tires

Im pretty sure there was a thread on here a while back about reading tires. I was wondering if anyone know where I can find it. I searched and found a couple but not the one im looking for. Im pretty sure it had pictures posted as well showing to much rebound or to much compression and the tire wear associated with each picture.

GEN 5!!!

Not sure of the thread you are referring to, but I have used this before. Its very basic, but can be helpful.

Here is one a little more informative with a video from Dave Moss

Here's a great site for suspension setup & tires http://www.feelthetrack.com

It's Not denial, I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.
