Just changed the front tire out on sat. The trip to Daytona finally did it in. I will change the rear next weekend. I got 15,000 out of the front and will get about 15,200 or so out of the rear. IMO that is incredible mileage out of tires that are as sporty as any Avon radials I have ever used. I hope the Storm Ultra II's are as long lasting.

15K out of PR2's and the only down side was cupping on the front tire? Dang, time to start shopping for a Mean Streak wheel.

Wait until that crash investigation lawyer wraps his head around that.

I dont figure it would get that far. They will see I mounted a 170/60-17 tire in a 16 inch wheel ( thats what is says in the book ) and they will know right off why I crashed.

The problem was that I wasn't going to chuck them til I wore them out
<SNIP>

You see, this is a big problem.  No one wants to give me tires until they've worn them out.  Does everyone think I don't need good tires too?  C'mon, let's step up and give chuck some NEW tires for a change.  I'm sure you'll be happier if you do... I'm positive I will.   >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D
