Alfred's TakeAlfred's Take

It is necessary that tires are properly used and stored.

In case of compound cracking, you will not be able to make use of the warranty, as this is not a warrantable condition.

Make sure you replace the tire with compound cracking, so as to have a safe ride.


You can give this tire a try on your performance vehicle using the 30-day trial if it suits your driving style.

If an ultra-high-performance tire that gives a summer and sporty feel is what you need then this tire will be great for you.
