I was just checking my air tonight for a ride and lookey what I found!



YES, that is 7 different pics of different areas with cracks!
These are all the way around my tire. Notice in the first pic there was a wet line, that was where I marked so I would rotate 1 full turn.
This is my Rear tire, a Spitfire, and I bought it about May this year, only around 4,000 miles on it maybe 5,000.

My front tire I have not found anything like this yet, I looked and it looked fine, I will be looking again!

I will contact the place of purchase and hopefully they will replace the tire, we will see, and I will let you know what they say.

Anyone ever have a tire do this???

I been checking the air and it's been right where it should be, not been leaking.

Now I am certainly scared to ride this weekend! Looking close as I could I don't see any damage to cords, the ones I could see

I guess I am down for the weekend now, a week to get a replacement tire at least also.

I know someone who was going to ride that tire to Las Vegas a few weeks ago.

Oh, and there is plenty of tread on the tire. The straight on angle of the camera makes it look like less tread than is really there.

Yikes. How old is the tire from the date stamp on the tire itself?



It doesn\'t matter what you ride, just so you ride.

I agree, that looks like real old stock. Rotten.

I had asimular cut on my last rear tire. Just 1 cut that was about 3/8" long and kinda deep, but not leaking any air. As the tire was not that old the only thing I could figure out was it was cut by a piece of gravel or possibly glass...

I will look for the code.
Is it a normal date on the sidewall or a code number that needs looked up?
Bike is at my shop, I did not ride it home tonight.

I'll have to go get it tonight or in the morning though, I don't want it sitting out in the open over there and no room to get it into the shop either.
