Just How Much Does Riding Style Affect Tire Longevity? Moto Mouth #70: Dunlop Sportmax III

Back in 2019 (episode #55,) I ran a comparison between Dunlop's Sportmax Roadsmart III and Michelin's Pilot Road 3, 4, and 4GT over 60,000 miles of high-speed highway commuting, to verify if Dunlop’s ad campaign at the time (which boasted of a longevity advantage over Michelin) was true or not. In this new episode, I’ve got data tabulated with another set of Dunlop Sportmax IIIs, this time used for weekend leisure riding and slow suburban commuting. Just how much does riding style as a variable affect tire longevity? The results may be surprising to some riders, but they do indeed prove the adage that "comparing tire mileage between riders is a fool's errand.” Let me know your thoughts!

Moshe...had no idea you moved to Texas.  San Antonio is a mere 3 hours away.  Holler at me sometime and we can meet up.  I'm in Houston area.  Lot's of BMW folks here.

Me thinks the chip and seal roads here in Texas are not going to "improve" your mileage! Welcome to Texas!

I completely agree with the theory about riding style having more to do with mileage than anything....

Congrats on your move to TX.  Hotter summers than NJ, but overall nicer weather and more riding opportunities.  I hope you enjoy it.
