  • left side of front tire totally bald, right side still had nearly 1/8" left

    OK, so maybe the left half of the front tire wears faster than the right side due to the crowning at the center of the highway, so maybe I push it a little harder than a "normal" GW rider, but there is such a discrepancy in rate of tire wear that I'm wondering if maybe the front end is turned a little to the right or maybe the wheel is a little canted. Anyone have any thoughts on how I would measure/determine that?

    What brand of tire? how much pressure? any work done on the front end lately?

      Same here are they stock tires and what pressures are your running at thats pretty important with tire issues.

                    texted the mechanic, he thinks the tire is still in the shop. If so, he'll send me pictures so your panty hose don't get in a bunch. FWIW, no cupping, but also no siping left at on all the left side-could have used it as a racing slick if only left hand corners

                      The light is very dim I see!!

                      FWIW.
                      1.I don't wear women's clothing (I have no problem if you do)
                      2. Do you go to the Doctor and ask him Why your left leg is hurting?
                      When he asks to see it.
                      You say you threw it away because it was no good anymore.
                      He responds. How can I help you if I can't see what you are talking about?

                      Are you able to follow along here??

                      If not?.

                      Take your own advice and wrap some Rescue Tape on the left side until the right side is worn equally!!


                      BTW - I'm a resident Proctologist here.
                      I have no problem telling you where your head is?

                      I see the term "wear bars" means absolutely nothing to you.

                      I throw tires away that you'd probably squeeze 5-8,000 more out of.




                      My question to you is

                      "What is your Life Worth?"


                      FYI. Your tire wore like that,Because you like to ride
                      Left-handers faster,
                      Than Right handers.

                      so maybe I push it a little harder than a "normal" GW rider
                      BTW- You aren't as fast as you think you are, with the size of them Chicken strips!! (Just saying)

                        Although rumor has it that gold wingers are the cheapest organism in the solar system, they(me) do NOT skimp or take chances with tires.... do yourself a favor and get some new shoes....

                        also so your tires are wearing due to your consistent riding habits and the way the crown of the road you are riding on, OR you only ride you wing at a nascar type tri oval.....

                        hope this helps

                          Here is what I throw away.
                          1. Because I'm not cheap!.
                          2. Because My Life & Passengers Life (When she is with.
                          are worth more than a stupid $130 tire.
