My rear tyre is wearing much faster than my front tyre. If I swap them around to save the tread will it cause any problems? I cant see how but I'm a dork so i thought i'd ask some non dorks...ta.
Exactly what JRG said. It's easier and safer just to get a new tyre rather than just try and get some extra use out of a bad tyre. if you still have tread on the tyre then keep using it till you get puntures more frequently, then it's time to changeJacomus-rides-Gen said:Nooo! Don't do it BTFB!!!
Just buy a new rear tyre, its not worth the danger.
Your front tyre has to take 85% of your braking load, sometimes more in a very hard stop, it is also the tyre that gets loaded most heavily in fast corners - neither situation is good if the tyre breaks away.
Buy a new rear, leave the front if it is fine.
