Getting a new rear tire
It's time for a new rear tire again. I've got a Metzler Marathon ME 880 on it now and plan on replacing it with the same thing. I'm lucky to get 10,000 miles out of a tire I don't think I/m that hard on them, but they just don't seem to wear that well. My friend in Nevada with an America swears that he gets 18,000 out of his tires just by keeping the tire pressure up. He runs 40 in front and 41 in the rear.
I'd like to hear what others are getting and what kind of tire you're running.
Oh ya, the dealer wanted $250 for a replacement, mounted and balanced and I talked him down to $225. I can get the same thing at Testa in Minden, NV for $200 but don't feel like riding over the Sierras this time of year.
