    Have to agree with Bob. Why bother taking them off? Its a fiddly job and gives you an indication of how much the tyre has been ridden. And how much you lean in cornering.

    Just on the remote chance that anybody cares, the technical name for them is apparently "sprue nubs" or simply "sprue." I clipped them off once. It wasn't worth the effort, I barely noticed the weight difference.

    I got a WTB Prowler like this, and it is COVERED in those darn things. I cut them off because riding on them felt very unstable. The tread was squirming everywhere and I even went down on the first turn. I used some side-cutters that would take off 3-4 at a time. Still took forever.

    Most tires don't have so many nubs to matter and it would be a waste of time.

    Made the mistake of reusing the razor I shaved my tires with.

    Big mistake....

    Shave your legs, not your tires.
