I've discovered the cure for cheap tires.
After they explode on you, you'll never be tempted to buy them again.
Forte Gotham tires, 700c x 35, 10 months old, 1,500 miles
Exploded going over a rock on a concrete path through a park, on
mile 23 of a 25 mile ride. I thought I'd been shot.
I paid $9.99 at Performance Bicycle for this tire.
