    Great tire....but....

    0 3/5 BNF - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Continental Conti Go! Tire - Front - 110/90HB-18 , Position: Front, Tire Type: Street, Tire Construction: Bias, Tire Application: Touring, Load Rating: 61, Speed Rating: H, Tire Size: 110/90-18, Rim Size: 18 02400280000 I have been very happy with the way this tire has worn and handled to some extent. Problem is, once my mech put it on, it was out of round. So I'm not sure if this place was selling seconds or I just got unlucky. No sense taking it off the bike at that point....would have cost me more then the tire was worth to pay the mech twice. So, I've left it on and been happy with the mileage on it, but it wobbles a bit and you can feel it. Not good. Oh well. Probably not buy any tires online again. I'd rather pay a few bucks more...and then the shop would have to replace it free if it was out of round.

    Cosmetic defects on a white wall tire

    0 1/5 CKM - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) The tire came in perfectly wrapped for shipment with no damage to the packaging. When I unwrapped everything I found defects on the white wall. Some that were un-touched and some that were obviously touched up at the factory with an off color touch up paint. Basically this was manufactured as a defective tire and then they tried to touch it up so they could sell it. Well if you are buying a white wall then of course one of the most important things is the cosmetic appearance of the white wall itself.Conti does not have a North American customer service line that can be called and it took them 2 weeks to respond to an email that I left on the German website. This is what I would categorize as inferior customer service on top of an inferior product. Sure the price was great but I didn't know I was getting a touched up blem factory second. That really makes me think when I'm doing 70 down the freeway...what else did they skimp on? 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 28, 2013
