Hard to tell from that pic. The tire has wear bars to show you when its done. Take some pics of the treads.

I've seen a tire with two different tire compounds have a line kind of similar to that when the tire wears down.

I don't know...now that I look at it, that line looks like you did a burn out (or just spun the tire a little) a while back and got a deep groove in the tire from it, then the tire wore down to the point you see it now.

The pic is where the tread would be with less miles

I don't do burnouts with touring bikes

Dude, spring for a new tire. Your life is worth it. Not to mention how horrible the hawk handles with even light wear.

You at least get your moneys worth be sure to use the "radial" tube.....

Sweet roads, now do them again with "vigor" and get to the wear bars on the sides. Or I can sell you some "pre scrubbed" track take offs

That's pretty normal, actually. It is where the rubber nitted together in the molding process. Don't stress over it - all is goood.

Bought this off ebay. Interesting what you find when peel off the sellers label. I tried patching then pluging. Still would not hold air. Purchased from Elys out of FLA I'll be giving them a shout next week.

In my vast ebay dealings, no one pays attention til you open a case. Say it wasnt as described and unsafe. Thats when you get a response. Or you can get an innertube.

If you need bargain rubber I have a tire that will still pass inspection. But like I said, a dunlop roadsmart is $100 to your door (shipping incld) from the superstore.

Thanks Joe. You did the tube thing not too long ago. How'd you deal with the valve stem and rim? Roadsmart...I'm looking for something I can get 10k or so out of.

10k and you bought a hacked take off? Methinks there is something amiss.

The roadsmart is a lot of mile for the monet as its dual compound. You may or maynot beat it with a touring tire but you'd loose a bunch of grip.

You should have no prob fixing that tire with a mushroom patch from the inside. Just use brake cleaner to prep the area and a bunch of rubber cement.

Tube has been a Godsend, you just cut out the old valve stem. Simple

No if I buy new I want at least 10k out of it. Really was wanting to see how a 190 50 felt, that's why I tried the used tire

What'd ya expect man?! Its Florida! Aint no curves in FL!
An I agree with smokinjoe, a mushroom patch thing from the inside-out will fix her up good...worked on mine for a couple thousand miles...would loose air over time, but just check before you ride. Should be doin that anyway, right
