    You hit the pavement at 70mph. From that moment you are slowing, so you don't travel the 102.6 in a second. Good jeans can make it through to the stop. Been there, done that.

    Would have to have sidewalls here. Without, it would fill in spots with snow, ice, rocks, and mud. Couldn't keep a balance. Hard enough to keep the stuff out of the rims.
