  • When to change tire (was Re: Rotating Tires)

    My tire has been completely bald/smooth for a few months now. I haven't
    experienced any problems yet, but should I worry? What effect does the bald tire
    have on the inner tube?

    Thanks, Alex

    If you let the tire bald to the extent that the intertube shows through a sharp
    object is bound to penetrate the tube (especially if you can almost see the
    tube); if you continue to rotate your tire (if it is balding in one area from
    spinning, idling or sharp turns) this will conserve it.
