Tire Side Wall Roping Showing - replace?
Hi all - I foolishly rode around for a couple days on a super low PSI before I had a chance to pump up... I now have two 1" areas of damage on the side wall, as you can see in the attached photo.
No other signs of wear and the tire has about 400 miles on it... any rubber fixes for this or do I need to get the tire replaced?
Add some slime and it might prolong its life for a little bit.
But looks like you'll need new tire soon.
I wouldn't ride on that tire.
I'd say you can get about another 342-343 miles out of it yet.
How's your health insurance?
If it's great coverage, and you're not particularly pain averse, I'd say you've got some miles left on that tire.
Thanks for the input all - going to play it safe with a new tire 👍
@chrisjane good decision
