    Why do I do this, Tire review.

    Maybee it's to keep you all entertained.

    Any of you remember sweetskinz tires, found a set for cheap today and decided to thrash them and see how thay held up.

    First off, putting them on is a pain and a half.



    To the ride portion, the tires do not hold up to hard abuse at all. They don't grip well at all.

    To sum it up if you get offered a set for cheap, avoid them at all costs.

    The fact that they are yellow and red should have told you to stay away.
