Bad tire

After only about 1K miles the top rubber layer begin to peel off, showing the inner layer. On about 2K miles the damage appears on the inner surface causing the tube to explode.

Responded on

Yes, I have been using these tires for years, and am very abusive to my tires. These have become my favorite go-fast training tire for all around use. As they are a racing tire they will wear out far faster than the typical garden hose/hard compound tires, but there are not many tires that perform this well, wear this well, and are SERIOUSLY PUNCTURE RESISTANT. That being said, Continental is one of the worlds largest tire makers and sells a ton of these, so to be fair all tires can come defective from time to time. In my case I have gotten 6 of these with factory deformed casings, yet got warranty without issue and never looked back!
