The 4 unused ones, I returned, but the installed tubes I decided to try fixing with new valve cores, bought in a package of 20, also on Amazon.

This worked fine, and I didn't have to go to all the work of removing the defective tubes and replacing them, so easier.

I've been buying Conti tubes in bulk, and using them for years, and this is the first time I've had a problem with them.
It's a good time to be a counterfeiter...
