So I've got just a little over 7000 miles on the stock front tire. This morning I was taking a look at the front tire and had noticed the dry rot has really spread, to the point where I don't feel safe riding on it. Has anyone else had this issue, would you ride on this tire, and what replacement tires are you running?

  • if it was on a car would be fine, but I get your concern with bike, Bridgestone motorbike tyres are crap, personally my choice is metzeler, every single one I had was fantastic.

  • I got 10k out of mine but yea I had the same problem

  • Tire looks fine dry rot?, you got several thousand miles left

  • I got 18k from mine and looked i little worse

  • I have 16000 on my stock tire. It's looked like that since 2000. Keep running it till the cracks get deeper. Or if your paranoid replace it.

  • As long as you don't see it on the sidewall or it doesn't get deeper you'll be fine.
