As one of the guys adding to this Metzler theory...I'm not "knocking" the tire. It just FREAKED ME OUT right after I put new Metzlers on the front and back and I got a new slight decel vibration at 30ish MPH! Just glad to hear other people can support my hypothesis.

I'm gonna hit the highway like a battering ram, on a silver-black PHANTOM bike!
