Hi all

I just received my panracer tyres. They came highly recommended on here and via the research I did . one thing I hadn't realised is they are made by Panasonic. Seems very odd? Lol

    Hence the 'Pana' in Panaracer.


    To be fair, I only worked that out fairly recently as well.

    Interesting. I am very impressed with the tyres. May have had second thoughts had I have known. Don't know why? I would have missed out. I tested them on the road, they seem to stick and fast roll at the same time.

    It's an industrial conglomerate, lots are.

    Fuji heavy industries own Fuji bikes and Subaru cars as well as lots of companies you would call 'heavy industry'.

    It's not who owns the company that counts, it's the product.

    I went from some standard Kendra tyres to some Panaracer ones and wow the Panaracer ones are good.

    Same here, only realised they were Panasonic when I read it on the actual tyres!
