How many miles can I expect out of the tires my 06 Sprint came with?
Very true, I have said this before, lots of factors effect tyre longevity, road surface and also temperature are just two of them.On 2006-12-07 14:18, cricket1 wrote:
I have the Bridge***** 057's that came on my '03 ST and can't wait to replace them. They are close to being toast, with 6,200 mi. I am replacing them with Metzler Z6's, which are a HUGE improvement. I did the same with my previous '03 Sprint, before it was wrecked when I hit a deer this past June.
Anyway, in addition to riding style ROAD TYPE plays a big role in how fast your tires will wear. Some parts of the country have roads that are much "grippier" = short tire life. Others have much "slicker" roads. A long time ago I found a map of the US that showed average car tire mileage by state, and it was clear that road surface type played a role in total mileage before wearout. It is funny to hear people try to compare tire life when you have one person in OZ who rides like hell two up vs. a new cautious rider who weighs 150 lbs, and lives in an area with "slicker" roads.
