I have seen that. Not many people are going to be looking that close at their tires though.

Maybe someone can explain how that could be molded into the tire and covered with rubber until the tire wears to a certain point?????????????????????????????

Good question. Lots of manufacturing processes I can't get my head around.

To me it looks like a computer generated image. A good one, mind you, but still a phony. The sharpness of the lines and the spacing of the letters in T IR E, plus the odd space between the words and the odd swirls there.
But I have seen it in real life. Don't remember the brand of the tire.

The layers of rubber are wrapped around the tire casing and then it is put into a mold and heated. This is were the tread is produced. The Replace tire is on the inside of the rubber wrap before the molding/heating step. I think the distortion is caused during the wrapping.

As Dave has mentioned, that's true enough, I've seen it too (for the past year)

So, the melting of the wraps would not fill in the lettering? Reaiiy!!!

Seems to me,when that is gone it’s time to replace,that’s why it still has wear bars.

to me the wear bars were bridges between different treads. When the bridge gets at same level with the rest of the tire its time for replacement. But the Triumph did not have those bridges in its tire. Is there a different form of wear bars?
