Just checked the tire again, and its at 25psi (totally cold), probably lost .5 while getting several readings. So, granted, I was 8lbs under recommended..
My question: Is this kind of damage consistant with 8 lbs of underinflation?
If my matinence habits are questionable, I can accept that, and make adjustments.
Or is this a tire quality issue?
Empirical evidence suggests 8lbs underinflation severly overheated these tires.
My gut tells me, under the same circumstances, a "higher quality"
tire would not suffer the same deformation.
My brain tells me not to cheap out on something so important, and above all CHECK THE DAMN TIRE PRESSURES!
Either way, I consider myself lucky.
