Quick question about Conti 4 Seasons -

One of the Duraskin threads on my rear tyres is quite clearly severed and there's a 5 mm long cut in the rubber that doesn't go through to the vectran breaker, would anyone else bin it?

I seem to be prone to tyres getting badly cut up despite avoiding the road edge and pot holes etc :(
Visit Clacton during the School holidays - it's like a never ending freak show.

    depends when you inflate it really hard (like 120psi) does it bulge out at that point ? if so bin it...if not could chance it.
    whilst their very tough tires I had one go with a flint slashed it...bad luck more then anything.
    you could try the Gators tho their heavier and dont ride as well I've found them tougher
