    Cut in tyre wall

    Evening all,
    Doing a tyre inspection on the bike today I noticed this small nick on the wall, should I be totally worried about it, I know it's normally a rush out and replace the tyre job, but it's so small, I will change it before I go to Bulgaria on it, but just pottering around town !!!!, I'm also aware it could "let go" but at the moment, the short and low millage I do at the moment, is it worth it. It's about 4-5mm across the tyre.

    If its a shallow split, leave it alone. As you say you'll be replacing them in the summer anyway.

    Use a toothpick or something similar and open it slightly and look at it carefully using a flashlight to see if there are ANY cords visible.  I'm guessing not, and no problem, but if there is even a hint of a cord showing or frayed - NOPE, not for any distance away from home anyway.  Hope you can save some money for the time being.

    Thanks all,
    It just looks superficial, but will keep my eye on it for now, and for the millage I do, and only local, i'm going to monitor it for now.  :016:

    I wouldn't worry about it! It appears to be very minor IMHO!   :164:
