Glad I spotted this before heading out this morning, there's another lesser bulge elsewhere on the same tyre which is a durano s. Anyone else had this problem? I've never inflated it beyond 100 psi and it's not that old. Think it's back to the vredestein tricomps for me.

    I had exactly the same problem with this tyre, shame really as they are a nice ride.

    I changed them for some Michelin pro 4 endurance. A lot better

    In comparison with a tyre I've got rather a lot of use out of:


    Bontrager Racelite Hardcase. Not a silky smooth ride, but they do seem to be fairly resilient to cuts, as they don't rely on the rubber to keep their shape.

    Had the same with two luganos within a week of being on the bike. Binned them and then had pro race 4s which failed within a month side walls split so went back to gp4000,s

    Recently had something very similar on a Vittoria Zaffiro on the back. Stopped a planned long ride very short but way better than going half way round. Felt it getting bumpier as the ride went on and it punctured just as I was about to pull in to investigate. When I checked the front it had the start of one as well. I think the Surrey roads have for the better of them, with a broken spoke recently as well.

    I did the same on a conti tub rear. It grew a nipple then the rubber came off and pop.
