IMO , If that is a cut tread that i see in the middle of the tire. If there's a little left and they are fairly new and the rubber hasn't dried up, They may be safe in the dry conditions, but realy subseptable to road dabri.

Do some more burn outs with it and get it out of your system, Then go get a new one ( 2 cent smiley goes here ) ;)

Don't just give your wheel to some jackass with a tire machine though :(
He might not know how to balance it

The cords don't provide any traction and with no rubber over them they have a tendency to seperate and release air at a rapid rate :p

sorry for hijacking but I didn't want to open a new thread with the same title


I tried to get a set of Metzeler ME Z3 tires.
I called and talked to a couple authorized Metzeler dealers but they can't get this type,
only the regular stuff like ME880, Roadtec, ME Z4 and so on.
The Metzeler USA homepage still shows this kind of tire but nobody can get 'em for me.
Is there anybody who knows where to get these.

If not, has anybody experience with the AVON AV59/60, it looks like they would be an alternative for me.
or any other tire that's sticky and available in 190 oder 200 for 17"

Can you get race compounds in 190 or 200 ?? I don't think I've seen any ?? but that might be an option if they make them !!
