Is the rubber showing signs of perishing?
Have they gone out of shape from sitting in the shed?

It'd been sitting in someone shed not used
The tyers looked great [like new]...
I rode it hard...
by day 2 the front one went [with a boom]
day 4 out went the other one....
New tyers and it's still a great bike
