    Default Cut in front tire

    after playing around with a burn pile this weekend i discovered a small 1/2" cut in my right front r1 tire, can see a little bit of the chord, not much but some, tire isnt leaking air. Just wondered if i should watch it close or have tube put in it? and if i have a tube put in it should i do it on both fronts?

    Kenneth,
    From experience, I wouldn't give it a second thought. If it isn't thought the cord or deep into the cord the tire will last as long as the life of the tread. When they are much much worse than that, they can be booted to extend the life.

    I agree with Jerry, if cords not cut you are fine. Based upon recommendation of good friend who owned site work company, both his and my experience.
