HOW NOT TO: Flat spot your front tyre into oblivion

April 6, 2010 12:46 am Published by

Want to know how not to make an 70 metre long skid mark without meaning to?

Just follow these simple steps.

Don’t drive around at two in the morning. Don’t find a bit of road that has no other cars, oncoming traffic, parked cars or pedestrians. Don’t give the speedometer a bit of a workout.

Most of all, don’t brake heavily towards a red light with TRD brakes on cold, balding Star Specs that have been heatcycled more than they should have, on a downhill bit of road with the ABS turned off.

This is, of course, simply a hypothetical guide.
