I am now on my fourth rear tire, second front.

I went with the metz the second time around, then was forced into a set of Bridgestones for the third rear and second front. The Bridgestone lasted a whole 5300 miles before it was time to change.

I am now running the bridgestone in the front (it seems to be a pretty solid tire up front) and a Dunlop dual-compound in the rear, which I am hoping will last longer than the Metz's did. I think I could get somewhere between 7k and 8k out of the Metz... both of my previous ones were changed out before their time, the first due to an upcoming long distance trip and the second due to a road hazard.

I will be happy to report on the progress of the Dunlop as time progresses.
