Your tires are the only things connecting your motorcycle to the road, so it’s critical that they’re in good condition. Do you know what factors determine when a tire is toast? In this video from the MC Garage, Senior Road Test Editor Ari Henning will explain the three main reasons your tires might need to be replaced.

I’m joining in to thank you for your video! I’m getting my licence and my ‘new’ 09 bike is sitting in the garage until I can ride it. I just checked my tires and they are still original! A low mileage bargain had an unexpected surprise. I’ll be getting them replaced. Great tip.
