GBC's SUCK!

For all of those looking to put the GBC Xrex on their XX just pass on them. The sidewalls are terribly weak and rocks will eat them. I have had the sidewall get punctured on a couple different Xrex tires with ease. I am disappointed with them. Should have got Razr II's. You get what you pay for.


The Xrex is not strong enough to hold up on an XX.

What air pressure you running these at? I don't have them on my 700xx, but on a kids quad. And the side wall was so strong we were able to ride for 2 days, with out the bead being fully set! I did have to add like twice the air to them thou to keep it from going flat, but they seamed strong.

I thought it was because of low pressure but the last one I done was at like 7-8 pounds. It was pretty tight. First couple times was at around 5 psi.

Fronts. They are 6 ply but thin and soft sidewalls compared to RAZR 2s. I will buy the maxxis from now on.

I have no idea what you are doing but I have had the same GBC's on my XX now for well over a year maybe almost 2, and have not ever had a problem. I ride at rock run recreation and the name says it all. The place is rocky as hell and I never had a side wall blow out or a flat.

What size are you running and what wheels are they mounted on?

ive always heard that the maxxis razr's have a pretty weak sidewall and i guess i would expect the same from the GBC's

I guess most don't ride as hard as I do. If u want a strong tire stay away from gbc xrex or master whatever.

You've also had trouble with the Kutters right? Maybe we just pick better lines when riding than you, lol...
