…We install, true, and balance a lot of tires, 12 weekly, and must say most of
the mains are the Desser retreads. The most popular and trouble free being
the Elite series. They are usually pretty true and close in balance. They represent
a considerable cost savings at purchase, and usually last about two times as
long. One would think that an aircraft tire (name brands) would be manufactured
to the highest standards possible. Unfortunately this is not the case! It appears
the opposite is the norm, and all the extra cost buys you nothing. The Desser
Elite recaps are built up on top of the line casings, and are not only thicker but a
much harder rubber compound, that has far superior wear resistance as well.
The difference in weight between the original Vans tire (Aero Classic) and the
Desser Elite is 1.5lb. and a very small price to pay for all advantages they offer.
We like, use, and highly recommend this product. Thanks, Allan...
