I installed a NOS set of tires on the bike that I ride in Jamaica. In one season and just into the second season, they failed utterly. Will I ever use old NOS tires again, on a bike I ride? Not a chance.

Taken at the beginning of season two (I ride between three and four thousand kilometers each season, while wintering in Jamaica)...

Taken the day, or two, after the failure. The gumwalls were in a nasty state of repair...

While on the subject, old plastic rim liners are NOT to be trusted, either...

I bought a set of tires in Jamaica and they are darn near bullet proof...
