FAQ5-How can I tell when my tire needs to be replaced?

How can I tell when my tire needs to be replaced?

Because it’s flat? That would be a good replacement situation…

Let’s run down a quick list of times when motorcycle tires should be replaced:

  • Sidewall puncture
  • Damage that can't be repaire
  • Tire with a puncture larger than 0.25 inches
  • Tire more than 10 years old
  • Weather-checked (cracked around the circumference), often due to UV or fluorescent exposure
  • Tire that has been run with exceedingly low pressure (damage is typically seen as a circumferential ring that looks “rubbed in”)
  • Tire with cuts or slices
  • Tire with missing tread blocks
  • Tire that is worn (less than 2/32 of an inch of tread in any area)
  • Tire displaying treadwear indicators
  • Tire that has cross section significantly altered (flatter or more pointed due to uneven wear)
  • Tire that is feathered or cupped and is making noise or exhibiting a choppy ride; some front tire cupping is normal, but a worn tire may exhibit severe feathering

If you’re asking us this question, you probably need at least one new tire, and likely two. Given that most bikes have a tire speed rating, and repaired tires lose their speed rating, most people with any type of tire damage need a new tire. The safest course is to consider a repair a temporary fix, at best. Given how critical tires are to your safety and your motorcycle's performance,we urge customers to stay safe.
