Angry Dry Rot on new tires?!? you tell me - April 28, 2009, 04:07 PM

I just bought brand new Pirelli tires for the gixxxer last month from an online "superstore" that I heard was a good spot to buy tires. So, had them mounted about 3 weeks ago and mind you the tires we perfect, dead on. I was getting ready to ride today, when I noticed some cracks going across the front tire and one into the sidewall. I was thinking to myself "wtf! did those muthaf#$*@s sell me dry rot tire? " But, I am a lil unsure so I took some pics. Is this because of dry rot? These tires have under 200 miles on them!
Sorry for the pic quality.

^^ true.

when were the tires made?

...wonder if you rolled over something...it has been pretty hot out so the tire may have been soft and something could have sliced it easily...maybe even a sharp edge pot hole

I would not ride on those. Definitely ask for a full refund/exchange. That's scary!

Rossos are a new line of tires for Pirelli so manufacture date will be recent, its just a bad tire, demand a refund plus the cost of getting them mounted and express shipping, was this motorcyclesuperstore.com and did you listen to Oneway? cause that's where you might have gone wrong

Yup thats the website. I doubt it was due to road hazards thought because the cracks are on both sides including sidewall. Its just like cracks in dry wall. I just checked the tire and it seems like its getting worse!

bwaahahhaahaha! cant breave; roflmfao.

'born on' date is on sidewall in a depressed rectangle, approx 1/4" letters- will give you the week and year of manufacture.

u may have a valid point...since dry rot is more prone to tires that just sit around....what's ur secret?
