Be cautious ordering Tires on Amazon

I Found some Kenda bearclaws on amazon for a great price, they have only one picture up.

I ordered front tires 12 8 25, and rear tires 12 10 25

The fronts show up first, and I notice this awesome looking red and silver lettering, which the ad did not show. but fine.

the rears show up a couple days later with the Yellow lettering on them.


I contacted Chapparal Motorsports to ask about exchanging the Yellow letters for some Red and silver so they match the front and match my machine aswell


They say. I can return them, but there is no way for them to choose the color I receive. It looks like I may just return all four and find them somewhere better..

seems a bit unprofessional

I'd just run them, you'll never notice the colors once you get mud on them.

Then next time purchase tires from someone else. The return shipping is going to be a pain to have to deal with even with the dealer or Amazon paying it.

this is the type of lettering that is on the front tires... that is why I liked them. They just said that they are changing their branding

I may end up just trying to clean all the letters off
