I ordered about first of June they said be here July 11, surprise got them today solid rubber polymer tires, nice looking tread got to see if threw my money away again.

Could have bought Tannus for $80 or $89.00 but these were reasonable $21.00 about $4.00 cheaper than Bell tires who claim there technology is untrue resistant, bulls**t not one bit!

The other yellow foam tube inserts are my tires from the inside out very different rear tire bouncy every foot of the way I knew it was destroying sidewalls so threw them off went back to air and lost another $25.00 on a brand new tire had not eve 200 miles on it.

So another test which is the best and how much it's gonna cost this time to find Mr. Right.

I will be interested to find out how they ride and handle, as well as, will they last...DAMIEN
Well okay, got them on I almost cried, it was too easy! All other times tried to put on a no flat tire I use 6 screwdrivers and a 14" flat pry bar + 2 or more hours to get them on the rim.
This one stuck a Phillips thru the valve stem hole to keep the rubber in just 1 screw drive slid it right on like a dream no problem.

The ride has some wiggle waggle to it not tea bad but noticeable if you take one hand off the steering to adjust a mirror wiggle waggle increases I hope not enough to cause an accident.

But freaky, to run over a traffic-painted line feels like ice patch feels like it sliding sideways back & forth.

Still checking for any deformities. The airless is less tall to the air tire and I can see why the taller it is the more its going to lean. But so far it's a good tyre just getting use to the quirks probably more to find.

Okay, found another small quirk you can not straddle a curb to reduce impact to climb over that. Was thinking that for 15 minutes then tried it the tire pulled out.

So Mt. Bikers are not going to be very happy about that. Me I can change my driving tactics. On turns, it feels like an airboat that swings it's rear end around.

Yep...i had a feeling that riding and handling were going to be tricky with those tires...make sure you are careful riding out there...DAMIEN

Waste of money?
Oh, not so or I hope so.
Cost of a new tire Bell product think is from is from $20.00 to $25.00 a new tube think it's about $8.00 your gonna need a patch kit about $5.00 $8.00 and your gonna need some worthless green snot slime that's another $8.00 a bottle and your gonna need an air pump that's about $14.00 so that's a rough total of $60.00 vs $21.00 + free shipping solid rubber and your not spending that once a year your buying replacements several times a year cuz the s**t has test proven it's self on standard tires to be a defective idea so that's a rough estimate of $350.00 a year every year!

So there has got to be a bitter way, I hope this one is it, Goodyear is getting filthy rich on us suckers with stickers.

I buy the better quality tire at $50 and they last all year, so $50 a year. There is no replacement for quality.
