Damm only 4000 miles on my Qualifiers and it is time for a new rear tire.

At least there is some wear on the sides of the tire and I just did not wear out the center.


Any recomendations I"m putting a ton of miles on my bike and it seems every couple of months I"m shoping for tires.

try the dual-compound pilot road 2 by michelin

hard in the center for higher mileage, soft on the sides for great handling

I have gotten mega miles on regular Diablos, and Have done every trackday on them. I would guess around 6k between changes.

A sport touring tire would definitely be your best choice. Greg at Cycle gear said they have Pilot Road 2ct's on the way. I may go with those for the REX. That green bitch eats rears like a fat lady at a buffet!
