Friends, How About Kilometres / Miles was possible wheels with the original tires?

I put about 3600 miles on the tires and the rear was getting near the tire indicator before I pulled them off. Since it is Winter conditions here in the Northeast I installed Michelin Road Pilot 4 tires for now. Will switch to Michelin Pilot Power 3's come Summer.

I got about 3k out of the rear before I cut it on something. On went a second Dunlop(junk) before the front got worn to replacement at around 5,500 miles. I replaced them both with Michelin PR3s and love 'em!

I got 4500 miles out of mine. Rear tire was shot but I probably could have gotten 5k miles out of the front.

I was consistently Commuting 3 days a week and spirited riding on the weekends

Replaced mine with pr3s as well. Don't think I'll be trying any other tire - these are the shit.

My OEM Tires: Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport.
My OEM: 620 Miles.
I have a scheduled journey of 3800 Milles
I'm afraid that originas tires (rear) does not hold on.
I believe I'll have to change the Rear.

I got 5500 out of my Bridgestones. I put about 250 miles on the bike a week commuting to school and work with some spirited riding every other weekend or so. I replaced them with some Pilot Power 3s. Apparently those should outlast the S20s that were on the tire. We'll see.

I changed my rear S20 @ 6,000 kms. It was squared off in the middle - no tread left.

The OEM S20s lasted me about 5000+ miles- through the winter and spring- had plugged the rear at around 2 or 3k and though I could have used them for 1000 more miles at least, I switched to PR4s. I am at 8500+ miles.

My OEM Bridgestones lasted about 4500 miles, the wear indicator was showing on the rear and there was nearly no tread left, so I switched them out for Michelin Pilot Road 4's. The Michelin's are excellent, I personally like them better than the Bridgestones, the radius is slightly different making turning feel more stable.

If you power wheelie, you will get 3,000 out of the rear. I yanked my OEM Dunlops at 1,000 miles because I did not trust them. 4,000 miles on my PR4's and still going strong.

My s-20's were totally shot at 2800 miles. Do I ride aggressively? Maybe :cool: Replaced with Dunlop Q3's and am very happy, how long they'll last?:confused:

10000KM on the Dunlop's commuting everyday through winter, now have the Bridgestone T30's and they are a world of difference.

Mine hit the wear bars before 3k. No problems with the tire or performance but I won't be putting another set on. PR4s or Angel GTs next.

I also had 4509 "weekend fun" miles on my OEM Bridgestone S20 's. I was happy with the performance of the S20 but have been a Michelin Pilot Power fan on my sport bikes the last 15 years. A friend got 17k out of a set of Road 2's on his V-Strom and based on some other recommendations in other threads on this forum I went with the Michelin Pilot Road 4's. After 1300 miles of "Tennessee vacation mountain and Florida weekend fun" miles I am very happy with that choice. Turn in definitely felt a little slower initially but after a couple hundred miles I got used to it and love it now. No visible wear yet and the center still looks new. Hope to be reporting back after 10k or more on this set.
