Re: Wear Down the Corners
Huh? Are you referring to the "comparison pic" of the car and moto tyre side-by-side?
I was of the edge-wear opinion myself, when I first heard of this. However, the guy (the one who wrote the "killer squirrel" story - damned if I can remember his name!) with the Valkyrie who first brought this to my attention has had several wear out the tread-center of the tyre first.
His opinion was that; the center of the tyre is most constantly in contact with the road - every time you turn, the outside edge of the tire has the pressure relieved from it, whilst the inside and center stand pat.
Personally, I would have thought the increased pressure on the inside tyre edge would wear it faster - but empirical data suggests otherwise.
