- Your tires running about the size stated or smaller?
- No one ever mentions these tires are made in India.
- No one ever mentions if sizes are true or what.
- How do you like them so far?

Being that I backed into these and are cheap, I'm going to be far less "ruthless" than if I spent my hard earned money on these.
1. & 3. Continentals, regardless of model seem to run slightly narrower than what maybe expected. I didn't measure mine prior to mounting, but my 32 mm tires are not quite 29 mm high and wide when inflated to 70 PSI.
2. My tires don't have a "Made in XXX" code on them and was probably on the container. I don't care if they're from India or not.
4. They are good tires that I would rate middle of the road for weight, puncture resistance, and rolling resistance.
