That is called for improved grip in the wet.

How come they are slightly more worn on the right side than the left ?

Unwittingly, most of my rides are clockwise circuits?  :)

The tyres on my 'yellow bike' after untold miles commuting/training/general riding........

Only noticed 'cause someone asked me if they were two-tone :-[


(admittedly, these images date back to 2007, when that bike was in constant use. Just 're-commisioned' it, after hanging in the garage since 2010)
