"Full Bore" tires don't have a very well endorsed rep on other forums. Although low priced, they seem to have some quality control/endurance issues.
never used them myself...

the term "full bore" in recent use, comes from the racing world, meaning "go all out".

the old grey lady says, "Full bore is the widest capacity of a cylinder.'' Some lexicographers think the bore first measured an engine cylinder (and have a 1927 citation), while others think that the origin is from the measurement of the inside of the barrel of a gun."

Still think it´s a stupid name and a lousy tire.
I did catch the reference to cylinder bore,
but what that has to do with tires..? :;:

Anyway, thanks for enlightening - it´s always a pleasure to look for info and help here.
