Left northeast TN for southwest MS, got around Ft. Payne,AL on I-59, the wife pulled up alongside in her new green Camaro and pulled me over. Seems the Vee Rubber rear tire was COMING APART @ 80 mph !! Not a good thing. The entire center patch of tread was separating from the carcass. I limped the rest of the way home, making for a very long ride. Replaced it with a ME 880 (but no wide whitewall). Vee sent another free sample, will throw it on after the ME 880 wears out in appx 7,000 miles.
