Nice look for a classic bike, but within a few months, the gumwall on one side of the tire started to separate from the tire, and now there's about 8 of exposed subtread on the wheel.
For the price, I guess that shouldn't be a huge surprise, but a bit disappointing. If you're just trying to get a bike nice looking for little rides around the block this is probably fine, but if you're updating a classic cruiser with the intention to use it regularly, look elsewhere.
I was looking for tires for a vintage Schwinn bike. Found these Kendras in your website. Installed fairly easily. Have not been used much yet but they should be fine.
Durable, easy to use tire that puts that original look back on your bicycle where it belongs!
