I found a few good prices for the rear tire;

http://www.ronayers....023/SKU/1652533

I'm amazed that they're selling such a large tire for around $160 most places.

I removed that link to avoid confusion or anyone accidentally buying a flatter profile tire (40 vs 45).

I ordered a new rear with three day delivery for $179 today. I didn't have time to surf for a better deal, but as others have said I'm amazed they are available so cheaply anyway...

I have noticed this crack near the middle of my back tire for the last few days. It is not getting bigger and I'm not sure how deep it is and it does not look like anything is in it. Is this a cut from road debris or a serious problem, or both? Not sure. If you click and make it bigger you can see its jagged not smooth.

Anyone try anything else? 2-4K for a tire is terrible.

BTW: Dialvel666......judging by the depth of the treads, and the area in the picture, it looks like the top edge of the belts may just be below that. Thats what mine looked like all over it. But the air isn't showing yet :scooter:

In Diavel666's pic there, you can see a wear indicator near the crack in the tyre. It's showing that there is quite a bit of tread left on that tyre.

Chicken strips? What chicken strips?

Would that small crack be a chicken gizzard?

Just a cut from road debris. Take a pencil or metal probe, being careful not to poke the tire cut and probe it to make sure there isn't anything sharp lodged in the cut. If there isn't anything in the cut and it really bothers you afterwards, take some rubber cement with a tongue depressor and fill the hole. Gently heat it until it melts and fills the void. This will keep any small sharp stones from entering the carcass of the tire and dong further damage.
