For under 40 dollars it is worth it. The original front tire on my 0ver 3 year old ecotric is still on the bike so even they last longer. So after reshaping the tire by bending the kinks out of the bead and wrapping a rope around the circumference and inserting a screwdriver and twisting to compress it overnight it installed without a problem. I had no issue with the bead popping but I only inflate to 20 PSI . After the tire settles in after a couple weeks I install my home made tire liner cut from the worn flat center 3 rows of the old tire. If you cut it to 90.5 inches and tape seam with gorilla tape it works great no issues.
