Tire trouble...?(3 posts)

Tire trouble...?Andy M-S

OK, I know I've been singing the praises of Axial Carbons here for a while, but I'm seeing a problem with one that I'm wondering about.

I must have kissed a kerb or somesuch, because I can just see the fibers that make up the casing on the sidewall. Is this something that I should worry about?

not if you like road rash.

Otherwise, change (or boot/patch if you know what you are doing) the tire before it blows out.

Are the fibers torn? If not, probably ok.

My view, though, is never ride on tires I don't have 100% confidence in. Tires are critical.
