Tyres
« on: 28 November, 2010, 11:44:29 AM »
!st set of Michelin tyres lasted 20000 miles the back wearing out before the front not very happy with the low mileage so changed them for Avons. These have lasted for just 10000 miles with again the back wearing wearing out 1st. Not very happy with having to buy my 3rd set of tyres in 30000 miles. My Citreon C4 Picasso 1.6 litre HDI 110 bhp front wheel drive car wears out its tyres faster than my 98bhp CBF1000.

Is this your first bike?? 20,000 miles is excellent, 10,000 for a rear is good! Dont compare them with car tyres!

20,000???? Never heard anyone have a tyre last that long before. Normally, I replace my back one between 7 & 8 thousand and the front one 10-12 thousand.

I currently have 10k miles on mine and the front has about 1-2 mm to the wear bars - the back has a bit more wear left on them.

I think that is pretty good as the tires are a bit squared off due to long highway tours with a loaded bike.  The sides are still in excellent shape.

I looking at new tires... Pilot Road 2s.  If they as good as my current PR1s I'll be happy.

30,000 miles on two sets of tires is very good.

I should have made it clearer it was the car that I was refering to & it is front wheel drive!

Someone is taking the pizz here, having made it clear that the 20k miles was for the Mich tyres on your car you go on to state that your car wears its tyres out faster than your CBF1000 :156:

I had a set of Flip Flops made up years ago in kenya that used old dunlop tyres for the soles - they still havent worn out - bit heavy though and grip well in the sand.   Just as relevant to the start of this post as Car tyres to  motorcycle tyres.    :455:

I wrote about my car tyres a bit tongue in cheek! but have worn out 8 tyres in 30000 miles doubt if I will wear out that many on the bike.
