Best tires out there.
brad you look like bush
Got continental ultra race, 23c … First trip out on them and flat!!! Puncture protection not very good so far!!! Had the gator skins before these and no problems at all!!
Just wished they would put an arrow of rotation on the side of the tire 🙂
I bought a set of Continental Four Seasons. I think they are great tires, but both of them started to unravel. A nylon string came off the tire and tangled in the brakes. I went back to the store and they told me, of course, that I needed a new one. It happened with one and then the other one is doing the same thing. I was not going to buy a new tire so I just pulled the string until I saw no more string. Is it dangerous to ride with this problem? They are about 8 months old and I had to throw one away. These tires are expensive and I think it’s a shame they have this problem. Is there any warranty or something?
Continental Grand Sport Folding is impossible to put on
I dont know about all the other Contis, but the Ultra Gators have given me 10,000 before blowout (3 months on the treads alone!) with only 8-10 flats, half probably due to improper tube install. But damn, 10,000 miles!!! Just thought I would let every know that, as I have spent alot of money on other tires to come to this conclusion, so I hope I have helped someone. Me, South Florida road/tour, 700 x’s 25’s.
I hope they are better than my ‘City Ride’ tyres from this manufacturer.
