Threads coming loose at edge of tire near bead

I can see some threads coming off the tire near the bead on my marathon plus tires. I've cut them off but is this a sign that the tires need replacing? The tire is otherwise ok (a bit worn but will do some mileage yet).

    I get this a lot on Continental tyres. I use a lighter or candle to burn them off as if you pull/cut them they keep coming back. These are fine threads and seem non structural to me.


    Sometimes. Maybe. Possibly.

    exactly as PP says - candle or lighter will do the job perfectly.
