This kept the tire intact as there was not that much stress to it. Others riding conventionally caused too much stress (equals heat) to carcass and the tire started acting loose, which caused more heat and more issues. Like a vicious cycle.

Yup, somewhere Garry is reading all of the hoopla about tires laughing.
