Nice look, but questionable durability

Nice look for a classic bike, but within a few months, the gumwall on one side of the tire started to separate from the tire, and now there's about 8 of exposed subtread on the wheel.

For the price, I guess that shouldn't be a huge surprise, but a bit disappointing. If you're just trying to get a bike nice looking for little rides around the block this is probably fine, but if you're updating a classic cruiser with the intention to use it regularly, look elsewhere.

I was looking for tires for a vintage Schwinn bike. Found these Kendras in your website. Installed fairly easily. Have not been used much yet but they should be fine.

I use them on my hand-cycle on various surfaces. I've experienced many flat tires and over-time have seen the tire material crackdegrade.
