Yes, Duro does make a 4.00x19, I have a few. They are standard fitment on the Ural motorcycles too. BTW, where did you order your HF314 from?

Jon.....I haven't forgotten you.....still searching for a box and life keeps getting in the way.

Dennis Kirk ( I know, you didn't ask me....but they have that tire) is where I purchased my Duro tires. I'm not a huge fan but at one time they were the only option for the tire size I was looking for.

Had one go bad but it wasn't Duro's fault. (the tire was manufactured before the dating mandate) The new ones I'm using now are working out fine.

I'd like to compare the tread depth of it to a Dunlop K70. Can you measure it for me?

The price of them are terrible compared to Dunlop K70's..

I'd call the tread depth of this slightly used ANS 400-19 to be .350 inch.

About the same as a NOS K70 which is 12/32" (.375")

11/32" = 0.344"
