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

In reply to the question of age and bike make

The bike is a Honda 1500 Goldwing, the tyre has only been on the bike for 1 year, and was made in 09 as far as I can tell and this is the second one that has had the same fault,I had to replace them both at subsiquent  MOT due to splits, normaly I would get up to 6000 miles from a back tyre as I do not ride hard, the front tyre is currently on about 4,500 with no signs of problems, If age of tyre before fitting is a problem why are tyre companies allowed to fit them over a certain age 

Cheers wingnut

just read up on this particular make of tyre

(bored) it is supposed to take a lot of miles designed for cruisers, but cruisers in America have a lot of straight long roads.

All in all most of us would be happy with that mileage, but given what they are designed to do I suppose that is quite conservative

The problem is proving it, in all honesty that is going to be difficult to prove.

I would just get a new tyre:smile

Load Rating

The wing is a heavy bike, I assume you've checked the tyre load ratings are correct. Otherwise switch to Dunlop E3's
