I recently did some track maintenance and I had several links that had small cracks along the pin holes, which I replaced. Wouldn't this be even more likely to happen as the track wears out? I do have a spare set of track, but when the time comes I was think more along the lines of sleeving the links instead of upping the pin diameter.
