I got a free pair of Conti Twister Pros from a friend... :D

So I took my trusty hardtail up snow summit last weekend to try em out... was a bit rocky in some sections... tried my best to pick my line but must have ran over a couple anyway and made a couple of shallow cuts on the sidewall... :(

Just wanted to know if it'll cut through next time i take it out... :confused: The front didnt have any but the rear had a couple all around... :(

I wouldn't worry about it. I've got nicks like that all over my tires. If it bugs you, clean out the nick real good and apply some ShoeGoo or similar rubber repair product.

Is best handled by using a patch on the inside of the tire. It works for a while but the tire really needs to be replaced.

Well it normally wouldnt bother me but some of the reviews Ive read about the Twisters is that they have thin sidewalls... :(

There's about 12 cuts or nicks on the rear tire on the right side alone... about 10 on the left.

Thanks anyway guys. :)
