After sitting one day, no.... At least mine does not do that, unless it sits more than a few days and even then it is not cloud, just small puff.

Right no offense to the site sponsor... But the popular online store that ROCKs lists it under $2K beating one from RACK.

Market dictates price if you want to sell.... plain and simple.

Post your impression when you put some miles on them. Those weigh a few pounds lighter than Michelin As3+ if I recall, so I'm interest how they handle, as my new summer tires.

Been there done that shortly after my purchase 3 years ago at 60K miles. New buckles and repair kit with gold-plated connector pins. And Autel scanner that is able to reset airbag light.
