I have used the Metz tires,which suck,the new 800 series Bridgestone,the Avon Storm,and now the Avon Storm II Ultra.The Metz gave me 6000 miles on both rear tires and 10,000 on the first front,but only 5000 miles on the second front.So they're no longer even a option.The front Stone G851 has over 8500 miles on it and still looks pretty good.So it should go atleast another 2-3000 miles.The first rear Avon Storm got 9000 miles,which was still no bargain.The second rear Avon was the Ultra but only went 1400 miles before I hit a piece of metal with a 2 1/2 inch,3/16 thick sheet metal screw in it which destroyed it.I now have another Ultra on the rear with over 3000 miles on it,but that's really not enough to prove its worth.I just measured the depth of it this mornin and it's at 6/32.It started at 8/32 when new.
