WTB Slick Flatguard Sport Tire - Performance Exclusive (26 x 1.50)
I purchased a WTB Slick Flatguard Sport Tire for my son as replacement for the same model worn out tire on his bike.

After installation and airing up the tire has lots of side to side wobble. The rim is true, but the tire is not close to true. The original worn tire spun true.

My son tried multiple deflations and massaging the tire around a bit to see if it would help. No dice. Still wobbles.

As a comparison, I flipped over my mountain bike with larger slicks. Gave the wheels a spin... very little tire wobble.

The WTB was the worst tire wobble I have seen in any bike tire. I would not purchase them again.

The tires seem usable, but I would worry that at speed there would be tire balance/vibration issues.
