The wife is not allowed to ride anymore

So when we got back from our 100 mile roundtrip lunch I saw this when I was doing my after ride check.

I think the extra weight killed it.

I just got the bike on the first, but I knew the tire needed replaced. I didn't see that on my last post ride check.

Mine did the same thing a couple of years ago. Whoever had the bike before me must've ridden a lot of straight roads; the middle of the tire was shot, and hardly worn outside of that. I was amazed at how much better the bike rode with a new rear tire. You will feel a big difference.

What did you replace it with?

I think I'm going to go with pr3's. How do I go about finding them at a good price and what size should I get? I've only ever went to a shop before for tires, I'm lost...
