    Classic Great Looking Tire

    These are perfect for my old performance mountain bike turned townie cruiser. They look good and roll smooth and didn't break the bank - though there are cheaper offerings out there, especially for a wire bead tire. But I'm a loyal Continental customer and these will have me coming back for more, as well.

    Both tires had high spots when mounted and inflated to 28 PSI, removed and reinstalled several times thinking it was the bead not seating correctly to no avail.
