    Would you continue to run these tyres? (Tubeless)

    I've just topped my tyres up with some tubeless solution as I had a puncture the other day and the tyre stopped holding air. When I saw that the head looks to be coming away.

    Just wondering if you thought it might be worth chucking the tyre out? This rear tyre is pretty much shot anyway but the front has done the exact same thing.

    They're only about 3/4 months old and they've covered roughly 700 miles.

    Please let me know what you think?...

    I've got a 3 year old pair of Hutchinson Bulldogs that look just like that.

    I've also had plenty of clinchers over the years that had that happen, too. Not a big deal, if you weren't futzing with your tires you probably could have gone for months without even noticing.

    Aah ok thank you, I've never noticed it before on other tyres but as you say if I wasn't messing around I'd probably never have noticed.

    That rear probably hasn't got a lot of life left in it anyway. I have some of the new Bontrager CXO TLR's to go on next time.
