I've got some small cracks developing between the treads on my front tire. No cracking on sides. The tire has about 1700mi on it. Should I replace it?

  • How fast r u going? Under 40 naw over 100 yes

  • Just keep the front wheel up when on the highway and you'll be okay :-)

  • Yesh. Dry rot is no bueno. Those things can separate at high speed/temp. When in doubt change em. They're the things keeping your ass stuck to the road.

  • Call the company tell them your tire issue worse possible out come you pay for a new one best out come they send one

  • She's good, Lol, I'd replace to be safe,

  • When in doubt throw it out .

  • Replace it ASAP!!!! Ive seen tires like this fully come apart at low speeds. The ply's will split in a higher stress situation like making a low speed turn and down you will go. Tires are replaceable, your not bro!

  • C h eck the date of tyre manufacture. Should be 4 numbers on a side of it. If its like 3 or 4 years old its time to change. These kinds of cracks indicate its getting old. Still lots of tread left but u wouldnt want it to burst at high speed so change it. Ill see if i can find a pic showi g the tyre number indicating manufacture date

  • Should be 4 numbers like this.

  • First 2 is the week of the year out of 52 ofc.. and 3rd and 4th number is the year

  • That is awesome. I never knew that . I do know a little bit about tires and now I know a little more.
