I thought I'd give them another try (been a few years since I purchased them last),but after about 1,500 miles, same result as the last time, whacking great holes in the tread.


It can't be just me can it?

    no, its not just you i have a pair in my garage just like that pic, may even worse in places. however: you can sort of keep using them in a squeeze. And the non-armadilo ones don't suffer with this (i have tons of them) and are sufficiently pucture resisitant for everything I have used then for.

    I changed mine recently because I had noticed a slight loss of speed - huge areas where the rubber had come off were the reason. That said, no actual punctures, which I was quite impressed with. 8)

    I've done around 1,000 on mine, fingers crosed they last a bit better.
