Don't do business with, or waste your money with Chapparel!!! Unless, of course, you want to receive 4 year old tires for your bike while paying for new. Or you enjoy horrible customer service that tells you lies and then calls YOU a liar. I don't even know why they have a customer service department, because they flat out refuse to do anything except say they're sorry you disagree with them (that was Jennifer - the customer service "manager"). In over 30 years of riding I've never gotten a tire that was significantly older than the old worn out one I was replacing. They will rationalize it by saying the manufacturer says a tire has a shelf life of 5 (or 7 depending on who you talk to) years. Would you put a 7 year old tire on your bike? If you care about safety, performance, and tire life get your tires somewhere else! BTW - don't bother looking on their website for reviews, as they will only post 4 star or above.
The only reason they didn't get 5 stars was due to the fact that it took a day for them to realize they couldn't get the part that I first ordered. As soon as they found out though they were quick to find and suggest an alternative that worked.
