not 3 months old, a year and 3 months lol.....I like them fine..well the rear tire anyway, the front tire had a bad spot, and by the time I figured out what was wrong it was too late to send it back...I didn't even think to look at the production date....
my front tire had a spot right on the center line of the tire that was a raised spot and a small dip right behind it, caused me all kinds of problems with the handlebars shaking and such, I tried having it balanced again, checked the alignment and everything else I could think of before one tech finally found the bad spot (like I said, it was a small thing)
but it was almost 5 months after I put the tire on that we found it, so I just replaced it with a metzler 880...the rear tire is holding up very well, but I don't ride a 1000 miles a week either lol...
I was unhappy with the front tire, but I don't blame that on Dennis Kirk, or even IRC...it was a production fault that got missed during the inspection, it happens....but I think I will just stick with the metzlers from now on since I can buy them here and not have to have them shipped like I did the IRC's
If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.
