faffi Posted January 15, 2011 Report Share Posted January 15, 2011 I'm going to leave suspension out of this and save that for a rainey day, but want to discuss other factors that have influence on tyre wear. The reason I put these ip is because manufacturers have listed opposite information, making it hard for laymen to know what to believe. Statements: Tyres wear faster in the wet due to more slippage Tyres wear less in the wet due to better cooling Tyres wear faster when carrying a heavier load (passenger/luggage/big heavy bike) because the flex more and get hotter Tyres wear less when carrying a heavier load because it reduces slip Tyres wear faster when overinflated because they cannot absorb small bumps, causing skipping and slipping, and they get a wrong shape Tyres wear less when overinflated due to reduced flex, making them run cooler So, could the expert enlighten me?
