In 8800 miles....the bike may have been left outside all the time and exposed to the sun's uv rays and also ozone........ THAT will age a tire - f a s t!It's a "Hoop" with about 8800 mi. on it, about a year old.
Almost every tread block has a radial crack- in the tread groove. This is very disturbing. Yes I realize the tire is nearing it's lifetime.
So now I'm looking for its replacement. Gave up on "dark side" as I can't find a suitable size match.
Any recs as far as brands?
