Paul, I recently replaced my tires. I was running Goodyear 6 ply tires. Even though I ran them at a low 15 psi, they were still wearing in the middle and not on the sides. The 6 ply tires are rated for 1200 lb. each, 2400 lbs. total, which is way beyond the 1150 lb gross of my S1. I decided to try a 4 ply tire that Desser sells. It is called Zero Classic Retro. I do not have much time on them but so far they look good. I have more than 4 flights and see no wear yet. I am running them at 25 psi, but again, do not have enough time to say if the are wearing OK. At the time I bought them Desser had a deal if you bought the tubes also.
