Today while I stoped in to check ot the Grasshoppers a little more I was told that the GHopper mid-mounts now come with the ribed or tractor type tires such as those on the Dixie's. I think thats a very good move because of the extra traction it'll provide. I'm still about 50-50 between the GHoppers & DC's, I definatley like the setup of the GHoppers better but are going to demo them both starting next week. Just thought I'd pass on the info. on the "tractor type" rear tires now available for the Grasshopper mid's.
