Tire Mileage

Just replaced the front(Michelin Commander II rear 150/80/16) and the rear (Goodyear TT 225/65/16). 16000 miles on the front and 32825 on the rear. Wahoo. Replaced the front with a Shinko 180/60/16 and the rear with General G max 225/50/16. I will get some pictures up soon.

I love my Shinko 230 Tourmasters...Where did you get your General car tire mounted. The last rear tire I was going to go with a car tire and I couldn't find a bike shop that would mount it...

Tire Mileage

sj,
I have been working with a local motorcycle shop for years and my last car tire they put on was their first one. They are open to try anything that the customer requests. The shop is R&R bike shop in Saugerties, NY.

Tire Mileage

sbg8r,
I thought the mileage was good but I just can't leave well enough alone. Just wanted to see if the mileage was as good with different brands for a better price. We will see.
