Continental Tires

When we cycled over the Pamir Highway in Tajikistan I replaced my tires with a couple of new continentals, after 3 weeks this is what they looked like, completely thread bear! this was due to the terrain, miles and miles of sharp rocky dusty roads.

Iโ€™ve still not changed them since then and theyโ€™ve crossed Kyrgyzstan and China, luckily Iโ€™ve a spare tyre, I just want to see how long they will last! Iโ€™m not sure any tire can withstand the roads of the Pamir Highway without some damage, so I canโ€™t blame the brand, but the fact that they are still inflated since then does say something about continental tires!
