I used to be one of the biggest supporters of Avons. Ran a number of sets on my C10, never had an issue. Got good mileage out of them, and they were so responsive.
Fast forward to my C14. It had almost new PR4 GTs when I bought it. When they wore out, I replaced them with 3D X-M. I loved how they handled.
A few thousand miles later, very little wear, I started gettign a vibration at speed, and a wobble at low speeds. Could not figure out what it was.
I put it on the center stand, hung weights off the rear to lift the front tire and when I spun it, it had two high spots on each side... like the tire was not mounted straight, but it was. Basically, it had four lumps on the tread area.
I replaced it with a Pirelli. Handles just as well.
Sorry to SISF that I didn't really believe him.
