Road Rider ST Tires

There have been some previous post concerning these particular tires as found on our 2011 Crusader 270RET. Recently we have had two of these tires come apart while traveling through the Yukon part of Canada. The first one was probably due to another contributing factor that has yet to be determined. The Second one was while we were just tooling down the highway on a Friday afternoon in Canada. Same thing happened to both tires and on the same axle no less....Took them off and replaced with a ProMeter Radial E from China. So far the tires look pretty good. Down currently in IL. with a wheel bearing failure.

Hello and welcome. See you have finally joined the ever growing ever popular Chinese bomber club. However, there could gave been several reasons why your tires gave out. They are in no particular order: 1. They were over/under inflated. 2. They were never covered thereby exposing them to the sun. 3. You were exceeding the prescribed speed rating ie. going over 60mph. 4. You really did hit some debris in the road but didn't see it because you were texting. 5. You just plain didn't take care of them. 6. They are actually junk and despite all the above mentioned (and more just can't think right now) there is nothing you could have done right to have avoided this. Sorry strike #6 that really couldn't be the REAL reason ALL these tires explode!

After my road rider carnage I replaced all 4 with lt load e's. Only 1 400 mile trip so far. Too soon for me to determine longevity but certainly no ill handling effects.

The 'Junk' category is prolly most correct.
