When you replace your tires, do you replace just one or both?
Yesterday I noticed that my rear tire felt as if the rim were bent, a subtle bumpy ride. I stopped and inspected my wheel, but didn't see a problem.
After the ride I inspected the wheel and noticed that it wasn't the wheel at all but the tire. The sidewall had widened and the tire looked distorted, yet luckily no blow out. On further inspection I noticed that the sidewall had rotted and the threads were easily split open by hand! I also noticed that the tire liner (Mr Tuffy) helped to prevent a sidewall blow out! Glad to be alive! I should have stopped and made a more thorough check of my tire before continuing riding.
