Would you run this tire? (pic)

Recommended Posts

I'm getting a new rear tire for x-mas, but I was wondering if I should run this one for a while more or just go ahead and change it out. I'm not a real aggresive rider. I mainly ride trails with my 8 year old son.

Here's the tire:

What say the masses?:lol:

Change it out fast and send that one to me! No, seriously, that tire has a ton of life left. Don't waste it.

might aswell wear it out before you switch to your new one, but would be nice having a shiney new one for the new year too. it's upto you, but if you hang it on the workshop wall as a spare it may never get fully used.

From the photo it looks to have 75% of its life still in it. You wouldn't order a steak at a restaurant and only eat a quarter of it, would you?

That tire looks great! Looks just like mine after one season of riding, maybe mine is slightly more rounded.

You guys realize that the bottom photo is what it looked like 6 months ago and the top photo is the tire now, right? Nevermind, I removed the other pic.

Just checking, cause you just about have me talked out of getting a tire at all.

I think a little more twisty action on the right handgrip is needed to wear that bugger down , it looks great and will probably last you another year.

If I were just play riding I would run it.

I can't really tell how rounded it is, but for a race tire, personally it's due.
