If you are in the market for some new tyres, make sure they are from a genuine retailer. This might sound like obvious advice, but it is the subject of a press release from tyre company Schwalbe after multiple cases of customers being defrauded by fake shops.

The German manufacturer, behind such tyres as the Marathon and the One, said that it would be taking legal action against any such fraudulent shops, and reminded customers that products can only be purchased through official wholesalers and retailers in Europe, while in the US they can also be bought on the official site.
