so i got a staple in my tire and i was seeing about getting it patched, and the shop owner called my continental road attacks gumball tires, and talked a bunch of trash about them. I've got 3K miles on my rear or hard stop and go traffic, 80% upright. I ride really hard. The tires are 2/3 of the way done, which is expected, or so i thought. He said that the tires were crap and wanted to sell me some a shinko rear tire for $120+ install, or a bridgestone rear tire for $250 installed. I think he just wanted me to buy the tire that he could sell for the most money. What do you guys think?
