Mileage
« on: October 18, 2020, 07:24:10 PM »
So this year I’ve run 2 sets of road 5 and one set of power 5. The road 5 gave 3.5k and wore as a pair. The power 5 rear 2.5k. Front did 3.6k and still good. I’m considering trying metzeler SE if you have comparable mileage to my road5 and run SE how did they last??

Not tried the SE but std 01's I'm getting 3k from a rear, and I believe the SE are a bit softer

What tyre pressure are you running?

I got about 3500 miles from the original bridgestones. I then put a set of Road 5s on and they are still going strong at just over 8000 miles, so I've had about 4500 miles and reckon I have a good 2000 miles remaining in them.

I run 36/42 psi. I’ve no idea how you get so many miles! I’m happy with 3.5k. I never go on motorways or dual carriageway and only done 500 miles loaded.

I am finishing a pair of Dunlop Roadsmart 3s. Currently have 7400 miles on it. I run 34-35 front and 36-39 rear for pressure. 3000 miles of those are fully loaded with luggage. Hundreds of wheelies. Definitely has a flat spot but has about another thousand miles left in these.

I might get another set or maybe try the Roadsmart 4s.

Pics of front rear tire attached, as well as the type of riding I  do.

I am only using a set of tires each year.  The last two sets have been Michelin Road 5s which lasted 9000 miles and Pirelli Scorpion Trail 2s which lasted 7500 miles.  I have another set of Road 5s on this time but the GT variant.  I do a good deal of loaded touring, so I want to see if the GTs make a difference.  I had the Pirelli Scorpion Trail 2s on this past year, as I did a good deal of traveling on gravel forest service roads.  I know most will think I am crazy for taking the XR onto the dirt, but it holds it own compared to more off road oriented adventure bikes.  I can only afford one ride and I am not ready to give up the on road performance of the XR, for the occasional gravel I ride on.  Although the Scorpion Trail 2s are only a 90/10, tire they are so much more compliant on gravel than Road 5s.  The Scorpion Trail 2s wallow quite a bit on the edge of the tire on the road, that is why I am back to the Road 5s.  I have some more back country gravel planned for next fall and I will be trying the Conti Trail tack 3s to see if they are a good compromise between the Road 5s and Scorpion Trail 2s.
