Rear tire “cupping” on one side only
My CTX rear ExedraMax has over 9,000 miles on it, and I’ve noticed that, in addition to it wearing in the center, it has “cupped” down to the wear marks about 1/2” off of the worn area - but only on the left side. Right side still looks rounded. Any ideas why? Anything to worry about? I KNOW I am not avoiding right-hand turns by making three lefts!!! And I feel like I ride through RH corners better than LH.
If this were on a car, I would say I have an alignment problem. Any chance of that on our bikes? Just wondering. Gonna get a new tire, but if something is out of spec, would like to attend to it during the change. Thx.
