Hi all, do anyone encounter such chipping from your tyres before?

base on the DOM ,

these tires are still Safe to continue use (from the seen pic) .

my guess is the surface had hardened thus it torn or

travelling on road surface has sharp edges cause the peel

any other expert can share ?

Hm.. but all my tyres have this chipping on the outer side. I'm puzzled as well whether is it environment or quality issue.

Yes. My area is open air car park. My previous car 10 years in open air car park with khumho also no such issue before.

How old is your tyre?

 

These chipping is a normal occurrence for tyres with silica compound.

My Michelin PSS are 1.75 years old and running very close to the wear indicator.  Also have some chippings.  Rubber seemed to have hardened a bit but still ok to drive.

My tyre DOM 5214(approx 22-28/12/14)

My Michelin PSS are 1.75 years old and running very close to the wear indicator.  Also have some chippings.  Rubber seemed to have hardened a bit but still ok to drive.

 

Whats the DOM of your tyre? Do you know how much more millimeters to wear indicator?

 

Mine still have about 4.5-5mm on my 4 tyres.

Mine still have about 4.5-5mm on my 4 tyres.

They are 2014 so 3 year old tyres from DOM approx.  still has another 1.5 to 2mm to go before the wear indicator will be reached.

Tyre is still grippy though, and thats what I like about Michelin and especially the PSS.  Still can push the car fully loaded to 170/180kmh last week up north [lipsrsealed]  with absolutely no lost of grip [thumbsup] .  Its really "one cent one quality".  I am considering to change to PS4 next but not sure if it is as good as PSS.

My assessment tells me the tyres can still run for another 4 to 5 months maybe till next CNY 2018.

Thank you

to me personally (picture 1) is still usable for basic usage

may be you should ask the tire workshop to remove it out and do I wheel balance and have a closer look or inspection on the complete tire.

should you able to see the Steel core or Fabric exposed , please replace it

judging like this is not complete.

If one feeling is not comfortable please go ahead and replaced it

Reason why like : I guess is sort of surface hardened / to hard take off / fast acceleration / rubber compound.

I am sure a Good Service provider is able to tell you more
