Hi there,

I have an opportunity to buy 15 to 17 years old sewup tires, namely Clement Criterium, Continental, and Barum tires. They are new and never ridden, and stored for those years in southern California (Orange cuonty). Owner says they are still flexible and seems hold air (but not tested for full pressure).

Are they good enough for display only, or good enough to ride on?

I appreciate any input on this matter from fellow mewmber who knows about those sewup tires.
