Thanks, Randy! 
Might be the tire pressure I am running too.
It is at 25psi, cold. What are you running?

Cold tear, but minor. I'd never seen anything quite like that until  
extensive heavy braking this summer on my takeoffs. I ended up with  
many small tears (cracks) in the center of the front tire, but they  
didn't go anywhere and don't cause a problem. Of course, your tire  
looks really worn out...
