I was putting this tire on my 2006 Flight Design CTSW Light Sport. After getting it mounted and inflated I noticed a slash (cut) running parallel to its rotation. The slash seemed long enough and deep enough that I decided it was not safe to use. I called customer service and explained the situation. She requested pictures and turned it over to the warranty department. Eventually they gave me a refund and did not require me to return the tire. I then ordered another tire. It was fine. Overall Im satisfied with how it was handled. I wish the process would have gone quicker. They did not keep me informed as I expected. After a week or more I contacted them and then in a couple days they notified me of the refund with a statment that I may be charged for it again if the tire company did not agree. So far they havent.

This is much too hard and heavy to be used as a nose wheel tire. Does not provide adequate suspension.
