front tyre wear..

Recommended Posts

yeah i could have searched and checked the tyre forum section (or 'tire' for you Nth Hemi peeps)

but i have a new phone AND i wanted to see if i still remember how to post pics..

to the point of this thread...

someone please remind me of why the heck front tyres (enduro / knobbie type) wear like this..and end up in an oval shape, and then makes the front end vibrate and eventually wobble (up and down)..?

yes i understand its from excessive road riding...

but why the unusual wear of each second knob?

here's a couple of pics..

And so there's your answer.

Follow the thread round until it meets the tarmac and the try to imagine what part is being scuffed when your braking. Then roll the tyre round further and you'll see it step off the high centre nobbles and catch the edges and rear of the next out set.

If you still don't get it then don't worry about it, get a tyre with a more road going profile.
