Irc Wildflare Tires Are @#$^&^%

OMG! I was riding home today and recieved that wonderfull rear wobble that i have come so fond of. 500 mies on yet another IRC Wildflare and its shot! Am i dooing something wrong or am i crazy? A 120.00 buck tire should hold up better than that! This is the 3rd one in 5 months And you know what is the worst thing there is nothing i can do about it.

Didn't you put a set on your dads bike?
Are they not lasting too? Or are you saying you picked up ANOTHER nail?

Yep i put a set on my dads bike and its got me worried.

And as for this time its no nail got a 3 inch slash across the tread. The first time it was a 2 inch gash on the center of the tread. Its like the tires are too soft for normal riding (well normal is streching it a bit for me) but still there is no reason for this.

IRC is all I run

I've run with the IRC Duo Tour for years on all my rides with no problems. Funny, it's their cheapest touring tire that's given me great service. My bro pays 3x's the price for his Triumph 900 w/battle ax plus they don't last as long and he's had a blowout.
