    Car tire wear?

    Tires are approx 2 months old, 3 are still fine, and this one was fine when i had it off about 2 weeks ago. Now the inside edge of the front passenger tire looks like this. Nothing rubbing on it, and i haven't hit anything. Car is a 2006 WRX.

    On the plus side, because of this i had to break the CBR out of the shed. After sitting for 2 months, it started first time

    Tyre defect? Check when the tire was made by looking at the 4 numbers stamped on the side wall. Should tell you the week and year they were made.

    Often places sell unused but old tyres that can be more than 5 years old. The glues have a tendency to break down in that period of time.

    Had a look at the age, 2003, im thinking maybe retread as they look brand new. One of the other tires is showing the same splitting now.

    Retreads are illegal and mostly trucks get them because its cheaper than replacing tyres... since they have so many.

    Retread sticks out like gluing on a piece of rubber with tracks
