I bought a pair of these. Sadly, one of them started to blister and I had to replace it.

I went tubeless with my gravel bike with these tires. Initially I loved them. With these tires, my bike rolled like an old Cadillac, smoothly and fast. After about 100 miles, the rear tire started to develop what I could best describe as tread blisters. The tread started to separate from the casing in patches. As I was running them tubeless, I found that I could pop the blisters as they appeared, deflating them. Im guessing that had I been using tubes I would not have experienced these issues. However, I could not trust them so I sent photos to Western Bikeworks, who quickly and without hassle gave me a complete refund for the defective tire. Their service has always been exceptional for me.
