... DOT 0618, for example, means manufactured in June 2018....i.e. 06= June; 18 = 2018 ..
February (week 6) in 2018 (not June).

Any update on your Maxxis STís?

Yet another rear tyre in need of replacement on my wifeís bike. Sheís had a front and rear due to wear, then another rear due to a deep cut across the whole width after only 2000 miles, and now a puncture after 2500 miles. :110:

Not going to repair it as weíre off to Spain in May, so want my nearest and dearest to be safe, and will put on new front and rear.  :028:

So far, I think the Pirelli Stradas that I replaced the Maxxis Supermaxx with are better. They seem to have more feel but they are new so a lot of that is probably due to the newness versus the oldness of the 7,000 mile Maxxis that I replaced, if that makes sense  :087:.

But if wouldn't hesitate to buy Maxxis again. They were good tyres. Good grip and longevity at nearly 7,000 miles  :028:.

Why don't tyres have more depth of tread when new ?

Canít remember the last time I changed a tyre due to it tread depth.

Usually the back one has squared off, or in the case of the PR4ís we had, both front and back tyres wore unevenly and were horrible to ride on.

My wife told me she doesnít want Bridgestone 023ís on her bike.

She said, not that theyíre bad, just not as good as Avonís sheís had in the past.

So itís Avon Storm 3D X-Mís (which I have on my bike) costing £213 ride in, ride out. Cheaper than what I paid for mine last year.  :028:

Tyres Iíve had square off well before they get to the thread indicators.

If I was commuting, like in my workdays, Iíd run them down to the indicators. However, as soon as shoulders (best way to describe it I suppose) start appearing, cornering becomes lesss smooth and the bike keeps trying to sit upright.

I suppose I change my tyres earlier than I used to.  :028:
