How do you wear out Tyres? Mine get ripped to shreds before the Rubber wears out--And I am replacing one tyre today on the Pinnie due to the puncture I got one mile from home last Sunday. Repaired the tube but the hole was a bit of a ragged tear and not a thorn. Pumped back up and the side wall went bang. Only done a few hundred miles on that one.
But the original Michelin Pro 2's that I bought in 2007 and took off the bike in 2008 as they were getting a bit cut up and kept as spares in the shed- Still have good rubber on them so have been pressed back into service. Just hope they last till I get a replacement tyre. They have done on previous occasions--About 5 in fact.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
