Think I need a new tire

Walked out to my bike to head out for lunch and noticed the rear tire.

Any place to have this replaced today at a reasonable price?

I will be needing them soon also. So far Patrick has the best deal. The mount and balance is a killer on the bike. Unless I find a way take them off the bike. Anyone in Pearland area..

sounds like the guy who signed up for a hill country ride we had a few years back that started showing chords after 50 miles of riding. Group of 18 of us sent him back by his lonesome self. lol

that tire would have been replaced by me a long time ago, unfortunately it's the "bluing" of the tire that prompts me to change a tire, not the showing of chords.

I'm downtown at the moment, head home to Sugar Land later, but anything within reason of central Houston I can make happen. Is this bad enough that I should be scared shitless driving it, or should I be alright the next couple days commuting without being able to get a new tire mounted lol?

Too bad you aren't closer. Wild West charged me $30 just to change a tube off the bike. Tried to charge me $50 even after they quoted me $30. Ripoff.

Why do people let their tires go that far? I do mine when I start getting into the wear bars.
