Default Tyre Problem

Hi guys... lately I have been having some problems with take cs-22s. My last 2 sets I used acted very strangely, something that has never happened to me before.

The photo shows 2 front left tires of the above mentioned sets. At the end of my second run on each of these sets both tyres just rip apart and seem to have excessive tyre wear at the inner side something that never occured on the second run. All car settings are perfect camber etc....

Any idea of whats happening ... anybody had such a problem. Before each run I clean the tyres with brake cleaner, however I have used it many times before without such problems.

Inserts too soft perhaps? Or too large an airgap between insert and tyre?

Both these will generate excessive tyre flex, which can result in uneven wear or tyre damage.

I would bet that is right where the belts are glued together. Cant tell ya why they might be doing this though. Might be the brake cleaner soaking through and eating up the belt or adhesive they used to glue the belt. Or Take-off has changed something on their end, glue process belt over lap etc.
