Did you hit something? I like them and bought another set. Mine have 1500 or more but are wearing and are down to the bars on the front sides. Not sure about the back, but seems normal, too.

I was all fired up to defend the 016. Upon seeing your picture, I've got nothing. Bring this up to your tire guy/shop/dealer. I wouldn't be surprised if they took care of this one.

Have a wheelie nice day!

Winter sucks.

I used to defend this tire as well!! Decent grip and all... But lets face it... Its not the ideal tire.
Down here in my town I have only 3 options: Metzeler K3, Pirelli Sc and Michelin 2ct
Prob going for the Pirellis...

I thought they were a good tire too..
Until I switched to the Dunlop Q3 and then I realized I HATED those damn tires!
Would slip all over the place I thought it was normal lol

That's a crazy looking hole in your tire.. there had to be something in the road..

Man that seems like a defect for sure. I will the S20 and Q3 recommendations. They are both outstanding tires.
