    Tread Separation

    I have Specialized nimbus 1.5" tires on my bike and recently I've noticed the tread on top is starting to separate on both tires. The tires have about 500 miles on them and I always ride with them at the max psi of 80. Anyone else have this happen to their tires? Is it just me or does it seem like 500 miles is too little mileage for that sort of wear to appear?

    That's just cracking, not separation, it's nothing to worry about. If little patches start to delaminate, you might be due for replacement/warranty, but you're fine for now.
