CRACKS IN TYRES

:unsure:

Hi Fellow bikers, I am in dispute with Bridgestone over why my rear tyer is showing cracks in the bottom of the tread after only 3500 miles, they claim it is due to underinflation I am sure this can not be the cause.

Is there anyone out there that has had a similar problem with Bridgestone tyres, mine is an EXEDRA any info would help 

Regards wingnut

Bridgestone tyre

I think you're on a hiding to nothing with that one because 3500 miles means its had some reasonable use out of it. Cracking can occur if the rubber becomes brittle or is moved when underinflated. Temperature, chemicals, UV degradation, age etc can cause the rubber to become brittle and the amount of that damage can largely be influenced by the owner.

How many miles do you expect to get out of a rear tyre as modern litre bikes can eat one up in less than 2000 miles?

Tyre issues

Underinflation can certainly trash a tyre as can a number of other issues as spondonste said.  Age can also be an issue where a tyre spends years on a bike that is not clocking up a lot of miles.  Eiter way, after 3,500 miles I do not think that you'll have much of case against Bridgestone.

cracks

should not appear in any tyre with normal usage.

Your tyres could be one of the recalls?

Hey Gunger............

You'll have to try a set of Exedras like Roy193 here.


That would certainly stop your caper.:wink:

Tyre issue

 

Age of the tyre should be on the side of it. but as the other posters have mentioned you would need to prove a manufacturing fault if you want to claim from Bridgestone which is difficult because they will have production records.

Better to just buy a different make and f*ck-em
