3300 miles and I still have the frag on my tires (front and back) from the tire mold. 90% of my miles are 2-up and I don't smoke my tire or corner hard.

Wesdalton,
I have 880's on my V-Star and with just about 8000 miles on them they still have over 80% tread left.

I get about 1500 on my vision and now have just learned that to softer of a ride will shorten the tire life.
Metzeler makes radial tires for motorcycle.
Thats all they do is motorcycle tires no cars no trailers no 4 wheelers.
The trick to tires is you don't tell the tire its going on a Victory they will last like any other tire.

didn't know metzler made a radial for vics.
replace with the GL1800 specific Metzeler ME880's, PN 167990 - Front and PN 1422500 - Rear (they have multiple fronts, this is the GW specific one and appropriate considering the weight of the XC).
Part numbers supplied from another post

or their generic front 130/70HR-18 $140.00 Motorcycle superstore
Rear 180/60HR-16 $182.99
