I put Avonís on front and back this time and have 12500 KMS and rear will be lucky if I put another 1000 KMS. The front is like new. Iím thinking to replace the rear with another and see how it works out. Iím lucky my buddy has a tire changer and balancer, my cost to replace is a few wobbly pops. I get my tires from fortnine.com and they are on for $249.00 with free shipping.
Wobbly pops indeed!
12,500kms and your front is like new.
10,000kms here in Oz and its bald.
Tempted to order a USA tire
to see if the compound is harder or just the spelling is different.
All jokes of riding upside down aside, the mileage/kilometerage (new word) you blokes get up top is far far far more than we get Downunder.
And thats a fact.
Fair enough we probably ride harder than youse.
And have more corners and bends.
Our average road surface must be vastly different to yours.
Or indeed your compounds are much harder for the endless superslabs.
I used to get my BT45 Bridgestones for the Gpz900r from Jake Wilson back when our dollar was better than yours...ten years or more ago and they never gave me your sorts of mileage either!
Something very strange going on.....
