Now this man does know what he is talking about I have always done good tire management and when I used Dunlops I would received 18 to 21K out of them, now with my 06 and Bridgstones I would get maybe 13 to 15K. Right now I have a Michelin alpin winter car tire on the rear and it has 16K on it and shows a little worn off and I should get another 16K out of it and this is after doing a trip out west in the heat and the tar n chip roads that can do a tire in fast, and with that heat and chip my front will be done at 13K and I may go back to a Dunlop that I used to get so much more.Well let me spoil this for the Car Tire guys. You should just get one of them. They are the best. No foolin.
Seriously mileage is always discussed, is always different & is always debated.
I never had an issue with Dunlops, other people do. Some guys are having great luck with Bridgestones & I have heard great things about Avons & Michelins as well.
Me personally I have always been of the opinion that good tire mileage begins with good tire management.
As always this is just one Ole Fossil's opinion.
