Tires don't last as long as they used to...

I just replaced both. The rear lasted only 66 days, even though I "got religeon" about air pressure and got more mileage on this tire than I have with any other Z6 I've used. Maybe I'll do better on the new ME880s. Maybe I'll even get 3 months.

Me brag? Naw. wave.gif

 

But, since you asked, the tire had 8,305 miles on it, a personal best on a Z6 rear tire. Of course, I haven't ridden all week, so the 66 days is a "soft" number. grin.gif

 

BTW, that's 7 tires in the past 12 months and tire #22 and #23 for this bike. Yikes!

The tyre business must be a good business to be in. What other consumer product could survive promising buyers that the more they pay the less time their product will last !!

Shucks, I only gots 2000 miles on a new BStone 021...had a nail then a plug failure. What we need is a good concrete high milage tire that rides well. And looks good in the rain lmao.giflmao.gif!

That's why I had to stop working in the pizza joint.

If I worked at a bike shop, I wouldn't take home any money at all.
