Tire sidewall threading coming loose all over!
although they've lasted me a long time as it is, I'm hating to see my Michelin Axial Sports degenerate before the tread is even completely worn (I still almost NEVER get flats)
they are 700c road wheels and they are ripping right above the bead in various spots...they still ride as it is, although it's prob not good what's happening...
I usually give my tires about 80-90 lbs of pressure (recommended is 85-115 I think)...and today I just added some air to the read tire and went up to about 100-105....immediahtely after, I could hear the tire stretching/ripping along the sides as if it were a slight creaking/rice crispies type noise
is there any way to make these tires last a little longer (at least till I skid them down to bareness on my fixed gear)? glue...sew? anyone experience this before?
