    Can tires be too hot? For example my brother lives in Arizona, Phoenix. Riding down there in the summer things get pretty darn hot. Can your tires get too hot and if so what would the symptoms be?

    Ken,

    THey would be greasy and slippery and it is possible. It really depends on what tire ad the temperature on when they will begin to get greasy. For most regular riding, we’re usually under the limit of the tire. A street tire on a race track in really hot weather would be when I would have come convern.

    Hope this helps,

    Keith
