Coyote Tyres
« on: November 22, 2017, 08:29:55 am »
Hi, I need some new 27 x 1 1/4 tyres for my 10 speed Raleigh, and I found some at Hopkinsons  on ebay,  The brand name is Coyote, which I have never heard of before.  https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pair-27x1-1-4-Bicycle-Tyres-Vintage-Racer-Traditional-Road-Town-bike-Retro/351945374072?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=621484743626&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649

That's a long link to them.
Has anybody tried this brand? are they any good?  I don't do a lot of miles, but I don't stick to paved roads either. 

Thanks for any feedback.

Peter  M.

They seem to be made by DSL. The ones I've seen don't seem to contain much rubber. They weren't very old, and were already crumbling and splitting. I'd not use them by choice.

Try here for better brands.

 :) :) :) Thanks for that. It was what I expected, but is nice to have it confirmed. I looked at SJS as you suggested and have chosen some Schwalbe tyres from there as they are about half the price of Amazon. Even with SJS delivery charge they are about £6 cheaper than Amazon free delivery.

Take care.
