1 Split sidewalls on Tue 19 Apr 2011, 08:17

Ive just put a new pair of Michelin Pro Race 3's on and less than 80 miles later the sidewall has split. Can you repair these or is it destined for the bin?

Suspect IMHO you're better off just binning it. Even a sewn repair is still open to future failure and the cost of a replacement (Chain Reaction, JEJames and Ribble do them for around £24) it isn't worth the risk to you or machine. I suppose that's the price we pay for 'race' tyres and 'throw-away' produced items. alien

Hi mate,
they were an ebay job so emailed them last night and they have replied today saying to send them back and they will have a look at it, so I will see what happens.
