Looks to me like each lug is starting to tear at the base. Most likely somebody rode way to fast on hard pack with it. I wouldn’t touch it, it’s gonna throw lugs fairly soon.

I don't think all the lugs would uniformly bend to make that line. Compare it to all the other lugs as they may all be the same thing. Unwind it. It maybe only those couple that are showing.

I personally would use it. I've had a track with 3" chunk taken out on the side. Half the paddles missing also. Ran it for a season.

Hard to say without a better look, but very common on the newer tracks to see the threads across the bottom, tracks are made pretty thin and not a lot of rubber there. However, unroll it and check every inch for any major damage.

Unless it was super cheap, no way I'd waste the money and effort ti install it

Nope I'd stay away. Looks like It's starting to delaminate, as stated above probably ridden at length/high speed on hard pack and heated it up.

x2 on nope! I don't like the threads at the base of the lugs. It looks to be only on the front of the lug as well.
