I will need to buy some new tyres in the near future and in the process of reading reviews on websites it occurs to me that the anecdotal information is not overly useful. The main reason for this is that often we don't know how long the tyre was fitted before a puncture occured. Even when we do know this there are several other variables (e.g. road type, riding type) that are not reliably reported.
So...I was wondering if there was any interest in setting about collecting data that would allow a better analysis of punctures in tyres. I suggest survival analysis would be a good technique to understand how long different tyres take to develop punctures. If people inputted tyre brand (we could select the top 40 most popular road and commuter tyre's), number of miles from fitting to first, second, third, etc. failure event or removal of tyre. We could include some other variables like season's used in, road type and average speed.
