tire wear questions
i've got some questions for the knowledgable about tire wear.
what exactly is a cupped front tire and how does this affect the handling/traction?
when a rear tire starts to square off how does it affect handling/traction? i've heard that it will negatively affect the handling, but how? i would think it would have to be very flat for this to happen.
even with a flat area does the tire not have good contact in a hard lean because of the large/wide edge of tread?
is it more a problem of making the transiton from straight up to a lean over the squared edge?
and most importantly, given that i have inch wide chicken strips should i even give a fcuk? thx.
