Flat spot on Metler roadtek

I have Metler Road tek with 6k on them. The tire looks fine other then flattened center (I am sure form 90% highway use). It doesn't effect handling

 

Has anybody else experienced this?

Just like checking your oil, we cannot discount the importance of ensuring correct tire pressure everytime before you ride. This could be the reason for what you are considering to be unusual or premature wear of your Metzlers.

 

Just my (very obvious) $0.02.

 

Thanks,

Hi Tonyla, I am not understanding your post.

 

I don't want to sound like a smart *ss

 

So, from what I read is that you ride the bike upright for 90% of the time and where the tyre runs on the road it is worn?

 

All of us experience this it is called wearing it out.

 

It can be a variable, in terms of how soon it happens (tyre pressures, load, temperature, weather conditions, road surface etc), but it will happen and 6000miles is what many of us would consider a change point especially when a bike is used so consistently in one style (again 90% motorway).
