Hello everyone. Got a new bike and decided to go with a lighter duty rear tire then what I had on my previous bike to help with rolling resistance. So far the grip and rolling speed is great, and doesn’t feel super heavy, but I have already had a half inch tear in the tread of the tire. And also I dented my rim slightly.
I don’t want to run higher pressure, as I tried running this tire harder, but it bounced off everything. Should I run a thicker tire? I currently have a Michelin wild enduro front and wild AM rear.
