Ive read So many tire threads like this one, and I'm just gonna say it:

If you're getting 10K miles on a set of tires, you simply aren't trying hard enough.  :nananana:

Exercise that throttle hand, it'll make you young again!

I could not agree more.   Bridgestone S21's I can not get more than 3000 miles out of the rear and about 8K out of a front.  Did a 4K trip this summer with a Road 5 on the rear and got 6500 miles but at least 3K was freeway.  My guess is for my normal riding the road 5 would be good for about 4500 miles.  Not worth the extra money becasue I mount and balance my own tires.   I am 70 years old and ride hard mostly on the back roads of SW Wisconson.  Anyone getting high mileage on any kind of tire is not having much fun IMHO. :)

I wore out my PR4s in about 6k, that's ther most miles ive ever gotten on a set of tires. I think it's the sport tourer, I've run way more highway and freeway than i ever did on my sport bikes. After careful perusal of sl the available options, I've ordered a 55 series Angel ST to drag around behind a Diablo Rosso 3 front tire. I'm happiest with the sharper steering profile of pirelli supersport tires and generally wear out a softer front at the same rate as a harder rear. The Michelins lasted nicely and stuck ok though they got greasy feeling when pushed hard. The last thousand miles the front has steered like a truck though. Looking forward to getting back on the Pirellis.
