They probably looked up your burnout record...………..instant disqualification.After having an AVON 160/80 rear tire separate badly on my Triumph to the tune of 1/4" in the mountains making the bike very hard to turn to the right (NOT GOOD) I looked on the NHTSA website and found there was a recall safety warning on the same type of tire, different size, many accidents. I called AVON and told them I had the same exact separation on the next sized tire and they really didn't want to hear about it or comp me a tire or even a discount coupon. Kind of a Conspiracy then, right Tassie ? If I got hurt or killed by it maybe that would have helped ! All I can say is I've had great luck with the Avons since then but yea, I'm a little nervous about "improvements" in a known tire I've been using especially with a silly new "chrome" name slapped on it. Might be great, I'll let others test it while I've got a couple thousand miles left on my rear tire.
I have gone through 3 sets of cobras on street rod, definitely experienced problems with premature failure. 2 reasons I never paid attention to production date and was slack on checking pressures and paid the penalty. I no longer purchase tires without lookin at production dates.I’ve had no problems with them except the centre wearing out . And yeah I’ll watch and wait for further developments.
