Stop the shredding those tires


TwistiT

If you ride in hard, rocky terrain, you might notice that your knobs tear off quite easily, even if you're running the correct tire for the terrain.

To minimize this, drill a hole in the face of each knob with a 1/6" bit. To avoid going too deep, drilling in the tire's carcass, get some tape and wrap the drill, marking the depth in which you should stop.

Drilling the knobs helps get rid of excess heat, which in turn, greatly reduces the tearing of knobs.

Also, if your tight and don't like spending $130 on a new M12, you can grab an angle grinder and square off the edges of a worn tire, just don't go to deep:crazy:

      Rad Manufacturing is now one of our premier manufacturers and we thing you will be impressed especially when purchasing something as important as wheels for your best friend the KTM 950/990 Adventure or 950 Super Enduro.
      We aren't talking about just any bike we are talking about the bike that will go to the end of the world with you if you ask that from it.
      We want to help you make the legs on your adventure the strongest and most farkled set of legs you can get. RAD will help us with that.
      From mild to wild they have it all. Start off with their Billet Cush Drive hub and grace that with heavy duty stainless steel spokes.
      If you are up to it and we think you are you may want to oversize those spokes and add a +1 to the gauge which will save you from the wobbles.
      Finish that off with either a strong CACR Rim or our favorite rim of choice Sun Rim.
      Now that we have racked your brain with all of these choices we have added anodizing and powder-coating options to personalize it even further.
      From stock sized 4.25x18 rims to track ready 5.00x17 you have everything you need to build that custom rear wheel.
