    after using this tires for 40k the side wall of this tires show sign of cracking at the side wall - as u can see is because of the design. anyway the thread still havent reach the threadwear sign and still another 40% compound can be use till the threadwear sign.

    other 3 pcs of the tires still ok!

    new price for this model and size is RM230 pp.

    Do you think its safe to continue to use this?

    thank you for the advise!

    finally have changed. Shop said due to low profile and insufficient air. I only got it refill with nitrogen before CNY!!!

    when remove the tires i checked inside the sidewall - no crack!

    email the tire manufacturer to report if this is a manufacture faulty and already one week still no reply.

    Ventus HR2 is very well known for its prematured sidewall cracks. I used to have HR2 fitted onto my ride but maybe due to our weather, the sidewall cracked like no tomorrow only. I suggest that u replace all 4 pcs of your Ventus HR2 tyres as once 1 of the tyre cracked, the rest will eventually follows.

    I was using 17" Pirelli Dragon tires last time.
    Also crack when the thread has some 40% to 50% of life left.
    Gave up on 17" and went down to 15".
    No problems anymore.
    :D

    yup.. hankook tyres well known for this sidewall crack problem .. my friends 17" ventus only manage to survive for 2 months .... maybe due the way he drive, regular genting visitor. :driver:, kills the tyres much faster i think.
