Default Rear Tire Wear Estimate

What kind of mileage can I expect from the rear factory tire on my 2014
Cross Country? I ride single 95% of the time. 70% highway riding. I have 10,000kms on it now.

I just changed mine out , 18,102 miles , still tread left but the tires are a little blocky if that makes sense .... I ride aggressively and 2 up occasionally .

Run it with 42 psi in it , that will help with longevity also .

18k miles on a rear tire ? Maybe I'm doing something wrong ?

Yep , surprisingly a lot of tread left too . But , I figured I would change them over the winter , got a couple epic rides coming this season and don't want any surprises . Plus it was wearing kind of funny and making a lot of road noise . I bet I could have got 20K out of it but why risk problems ....

I changed my E3 dunlop at 10k kilometers .... Still had a bit of thread left but could not stand slivering & sliding on wet corners any more .... But i could NEVER imagine getting that amount of Km or Miles out of a tire ...

Good on you Mags ... Wish i could control myself like that

I've never done a burnout on it , but I do accelerate hard most of the time , but seems like every bike I have had no matter what tires I get good wear out of them . Just switched to Avon Cobras , cant wait to run them ...

What kind of tread wear measurement should I be aware of compared to new?
