I'm not sure what mine is doing. All I know is I sent a picture like this to Panaracer and a customer service rep said it was cosmetic but they still sent me a set of Ribmos for my "trouble".

Yep, that's the same thing. You could peel off that whole layer (carefully) and the tire would be just fine.

There is a black sidewall version, at least on some widths. I have a couple of the 700Cx28's in all black. Wire bead only, though, AFAIK.

dang,you're too late. My brother got me a Ribmo 700x25 for $26. Plus, I also found that Soma uses panaracer to make their tires and come in all black.

I had this problem with Specialized tires, but it didn't seem to affect performance, the tires lasted until the tread wore away.

I had been using Schwalbe Kojaks on my folder, and these developed numerous cracks all around the sidewalls, but the tires also lasted until the tread wore away, with no punctures at all in a year of city riding. I recently changed to Panasonic Minits tires, so far they are holding up quite well. They roll better than the Kojaks, and are a bit lighter.

How often do you inflate that tire and to what pressure?
The thread cross hatching lines in the sidewall are usually caused by running too low psi; thus the sidewall flexes too much and the threads start to show through....

During the time the cracks developed I was running just below the max pressure on the side - so probably 85-90psi. Off the top of my head I think the max pressure is 95. Anyway, rereading your post, it seems you're referring to something different...those "crosshatch" lines are visible in ThermionicScott's picture as well so I'm not sure what that's all about.

Having seen ThermionicScott's picture it does look to be the bead layer.
