This is my Dunlop 195/55 run flat 3D at one year old
and just a bit over 24,000 miles.

Cost me two saw blades to cut it open
:eek:4: ... man, that thing is tough
my hands are shredded.

After having seen pictures of other runflats
supposedly "delaminating" on the inside sidewall,
I wanted to see what mine looked like.

Right at the edge (sidewall to tread area),
if I look with a magnifying glass I can see some
VERY tiny hairline cross hatch marks
... something like you'd see on the outside of
a trailer tire that has been sitting unused out
in the sun for five years.
There is also a very slight discoloration in that area.
I see NOTHING that looks like the interior side wall has
been over-flexing or overheated.

If I had the "gonads" to run this tire "bald",
I'm sure it would have gone another 10k miles.
This tire has many hours of triple digit hwy speeds.
I took two pics ... I'll take the cut away "section" with
me on the road this summer in case anyone
wants to see it.

That sounds like way too much work.

Could you add a picture of the tread to show the amount of wear. I assume it's down to the wear bars, but it wouldn't hurt to add a shot.

thanks,
Mike

Look.I felt bad so I went next door and asked my neighbor friend if she'd let me have a picture of her in her vest..
She said sure,But you aren't going to show it to dirty old perverted men are you?
I said I don't know any dirty old men...(I'll burn in hell for lying to that sweet girl)

So now you guys better clean up your act!!

Wingwing,
Can you get a close up pic of those 'tiny' cracks you found inside the walls. What about that cut on the inner lip?

I don't have a better camera anymore,
those pics were with my cell phone...
("reverse engineered" my life last year)
:cry: :lol:

I did the cut on the lip... with my sawzall.
I could not remove the tire from the rim so I cut it off.
