We combed through piles of used Bridgestone, Dunlop, Michelin and Pirelli rear tires to conduct some tire reading exercises. Hot tears, cold tears, geometry tears, wrong compound issues, and even some perfect wear. Remember, in today’s world there are no bad tires.

Hi Dave, at 12:15 you say rebound is a little too fast, but wouldn’t the comet tail poiting backwards suggest otherwise? That part got me a little bit confused. Everything made sense up to the point where Dave, the editor, asked what the tire rotation was.
Hi Dave, Doug here!
Yesterday with ambient temp. of 35°C and track temp. at 45°C, I have an tear that now (not finish the video yet) looks like an geometry tear/cold with an Pirelli SC0.
kind of scary but before the end of the day I manage to get better with pressure, but the forks are at 3 lines showing. Gonna rise the front and test with an harder tire SC1 ou 2.
