Great Tires, Great Price

I had to replace the tires on my 45-50 year old Schwinn Continental bicycle. Found Bike Tires Direct, bought the tires, they arrived promptly, I installed them, I am very happy.

Not durable

Although the tire is supposed to be desgned for rougher roads, i have had two tires fail with carcass tearing and splitting in one year, about 300 miles. I ride a mix of sidewalks, streets, paved paths, and crushed limestone. I inflate to the max, 85 psi. I weight 200 pounds. I didn't bash any curbs or potholes. But i do encounter the expected cracks, walnuts, etc. Tire is inexpensive, but not worth buying if it going to be so fragile. Don't be mislead by the sales description. Get some Continentals like i will be doing.

Looks Like 27 Inch Tires Looked When That's All There Was

If you have 27 inch rims, this is the way to go Tan sidewalls, Black tred. Not only are the just like tires from the good old days, they have almost the same price!

Vast improvement

Still have my early eighties Fugi ( among others ) Has 27 non hooked rims and have had trouble with tires

blowing off the rim under pressure. So, years ago I was sold a pair of Chen Shin tires. Very heavy and

crude. Even had trouble centering the bead on the rim. Years go by, I've had enough ! I take a chance

and order the Kenda K40s ( gumwall good for classic authenticity ) Wow ! what a tire should be.

Mounts like a dream, no rim problems, It's light, flexible and rolls out smoooth. On first ride I immediatly

feel the reduced effort req'd to pedal. Feels like I gained 10 horsepower ! To top it off Bike Tires Direct

had them on sale. Value Five and one half stars ! Joel , Taos NM

Great budget tire

I really like the vintage gumwall look on my vintage bike. The tire was easy to mount and has a good tread pattern for street use.

Tire is splitting, less than two years, and 800 miles!

Bought a set June 2014, bike is kept indoors, and I've put less than 800 miles on them. Looked this weekend March 2016- the rear tire is splitting where the gum wall joins the black all around the tire on the rear one. The front tire is splitting here and there.

Be Careful with Old NoHook Rims

I had great expectations for these tires, but found they blew off my old rims- the original '70's rims with no hook. HOWEVER, on my new replacement Hook style rims, they are SWEET! More cush for the tush, and a great ride. THey can take proper pressure with a hook rim. I ran them at 70PSI on rough country roads, no problems. SUmmary Hook Rims Excellent value, old rims be careful, they will pop off.

ps, anybody have a tire that will stay on old school rims???
