Specialized Hemisphere Tire – Product Review

I recently purchased THIS tire for 10$
I’ve heard of people tricking on it before and the color was awesome, plus it was dirt cheap compared to the other tires i had in mind.

I purchased it in the 26×1.95 size thinking it would be okay for my rim (36mm wide) but it wasn’t.
the tire barley protected my rim sidewalls and i ended up damaging my rim.

and not only that, the tire really wears down quickly. No more than 20 days of riding and its down to the red protection layer leaving my tube 1mm away from the pavement.
here are some pictures of the wear and tear.
