So 4 days ago I replaced my worn (3500 puncture free miles) Marathon Plus with a Durano Plus. Looked at the tyre last night and it now has an 8mm cut right across it, deep enough to show the blue puncute protection strip. Really pissed me off!

    @ E-C.

    Not tyre-related, but I had to stop by to let you know my forced purchase (by you) of the red knee warmers, leading to financial ruin was a good decision. Knees are nice and toasty :lol:

    Glad to be of service! Short term loss, long term gain. Happy Days! :D
