Default Re: flat tires on a motorized bicycle (do not turn tire inside out)

The tires on a motored bike also just seem to take more wear. It sorta makes sense. But one would think that you could ride easy and things would balance out.

But it doesn't seem to be that way.

What convinced me of this is my studded tire on front. I put a brand new one on last fall.

On my pedal bike I have a studded tire that has gone through two seasons now and the studs are maybe half worn down.

My motored bike didn't even get all that much use during this past horrible winter. Yet the studs that were brand new in December are now worn down to flat spots. It's so bad that I haven't even bothered changing to a non-studded tire yet. I've got practically the same thing right now.
