@ some1 I like the dedication that you have to your theory, but it is a pretty ridiculous one, for the following reasons: 1- most wear is put on the front going into and through the corner, trail braking and then using edge grip. Under braking is when the most pressure is on the front tyre 2- Wear also can occurs to the front as it gets pushed (understeer) through the corner on exit, but only occurs when the bike is on its side. Stoner avoids this somewhat by steering with the rear 3- Stoner was wheelying out of the corner once the bike was upright on the least stressed part of the tyre 4- if anything it is rougher on the front to wheelie. As the tyre makes contact with the track again it is moving at a different speed, causing wear as it catches up (think of a plane landing) He was saying that your theory was dumb.
