  • Bald spot on rear tire ?

    Was checking out rear tire on one of the bikes, and tread is fine except for a spot about 10 to 14 inches long which is totally bald. The rest of the tire has normal tread wear. Never saw one wear like this. Don't remember sliding the rear at all .What the hell would cause this ?

    Probably due to the tire not being perfectly round.
    I remember hearing in the 70s of Bonneville racers putting their wheels on, essentially, a big lathe and turning each one to round.
    Livin the dream

      I would agree on it not being round. Might have had a cord separating which would cause that.
      Bonneville might have beat us again this year but that White Bitch is going down in 2018!!!
