I'm fairly new to road tires. I've had a set of Ultra 2000's for about 400 miles. When I looked at the tire today while cleaning the bike up, I noticed a scuff mark on the tire and a little area in the middle, like a 3mm patch, that on close inspection appeared to have broken through to the fiber.
I had to do a quick stop a little while back and skidded but only for a fraction of a second. I imagine this is when the damage occurred. Does this sound right? These tires have but one quick skid in them?
I should replace the tire, but I'm thinking maybe something a little more durable in the rear - not sure. Any recommendations? Would a different style tire (but the same size) on the rear affect the accuracy of the computer? Thanks!
