Got these to put on my commuter bike, previously had continental and schwable. These are cheap and have good levels of grip, not fast rolling but not slow either, not much feedback but for a 5 mile commute not a bad tyre. I was sold on the puncher protection aspect and so far no flats which is a plus. But my main issue is the sidewalls on both tyres are badly cracked and splitting after about 6 months use. It's only a matter of time before the sidewalls fail so will require changing soon even though the actual tread hasn't worn much. Think I will return to a premium brand.
I'm sorry to read that the sidewalls show signs of wear. There are three possible reasons for this. 1) Poorly stored tyres post production or 2) tyres left un-inflated for a period of time 3) continuous exposure to UV light (leaving your bike outside all of the time). As you are a regular cyclist I doubt very much that the latter two reasons are the cause of your issues. If you feel that they are faulty, please feel free to return them to us for an exchange for a different tyre.

Compared with other brand names, this is a very good priced puncture-resistant tyre. However, from the start, I noticed that it felt a little lumpy when I used it on the rear wheel. Not a major problem, but I was disappointed when it exploded with a very loud bang last week due to internal de-lamination. It was 19 months old and had done 1700 miles. This is much less than I have come to expect from a tyre.
I went for these tyres after I had 5 punctures on my back tyre, first ride after I installed these I got another puncture so I’m disappointed to be honest
Only been for couple of rides on these so far, recently 30 miles. They seem to roll better than the previous big name ones that I'd worn out in about 1 season... They seem to inspire confidence in corners too, even in damper bits.
