Do tires have an "expiration" or age limit?
I found a couple of brand new tires that had been in storage since probably 1995. They were Velociraptors with less that 100 miles on them. Good MTB tires.
I used them for @150 miles, mainly on pavement. I noticed that the outside knobbies were pulling loose. Is that because of the pavement, the age of the tires, both, neither? Should I just trash them at this point?
I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!
