Hey everyone:

Is anyone ever had problems with the Vredestein Fortezza tires? Specifically the sidewall threads coming off? It looks like small pieces of sewing thread. Not a lot of them, but it kinda scares me when I know I have been descending on some of the climbs around southern Cal at speeds greater then 40 mph. The tires have about 800 miles on them. Just wanted to see if anyone else has noticed this?


Thanks all....

Continental tires do this all the time - nothing much to worry about as long as you keep checking them after your ride.
