Well I think we found your problem , Florida and Pirelli . Buy some Bridgestone tires and leave town . Next question ?From what I was told the tire was close to new maybe 1k-2k on it. The wear is pretty considerable on the left compared to the right. I do live in South Florida and the pavement does get hot, but never had this happen. I put 25k miles on a Silverwing down here and never had a problem like that. The middle strip of the tire is in great condition with plenty of tread. I am worried about the side wear. Its a Pirelli so it isnt a cheap tire and right now no threads showing but I need to keep an eye on it.
