  • What would cause a tire to wear like this...

    Inside the belts look ok. Any how, switched to a Commander III Touring from a Shinko 777 HD. Now, if the rain can stop.

    Tire pressure and out of balance.

      Tire pressure was at 36 psi and I used Dyna beads for balancing. So really don't know. 17000 KM (10500 miles) on it

      What kind of load on the bike? Stock, saddlebags, tourpack, fairing, stereo, passenger? Most of us run 38-40 psi front & rear

      The weirdest is that inside on the tire does not show any damage or malformation

    For what it's worth I usually run 37-38 pounds up front. I also run Commanders.

      I would guess a road hazard that caused the tread to separate from the core.

        Miles and low tire pressure. I have always ran 40, and have got anywhere from 10k to 15k out of front tires. Depends on the tire. I have ran a lot of Avons. on my Roadstar and the several touring bikes l have owned. They are usually good for 10 to 12k. The tires such as Dumlop have not worn well for me. Nor the Metzlers or Michelin's. But most get bette rmileage than the Avons, but not near the handling or confidence on wet pavement as the Avons.. Metzlers came the closest with a little more mileage than Avons. and good wet tractlion. All have worn evenly running 38 to 40#s. But, I do not run my tires to the end of life like most , When they start showing a lot of wear I replace them.

            Wow, and I’m in Canada. Can’t imagine those in Texas or Arizona. And I’m not being sarcastic here.
