I bought this tire at the end of April 2013, Its now the beginning of June 2014, I bought the tire because it had some good reviews and the price was good. I love the tire the whole time I had it except the durability of it sucks! I didn't ride hardly any in the winter which was like a 6 or 7 month span of me barley riding and now the tire is showing the cored. AND I haven't done any burn outs or wheelies on this tire either lol. Any ways the durability is my only problem with the tire!
