Front Tire Life

Post  mark_1bx on Mon Jan 04, 2010 3:47 pm

I'm just wondering if you have found that by running a C/T (rear) that your getting better front tire wear/life.
The reason I ask is I'm running a Metzz 140 on my '04 Retro. Last late summer I change out the front tire and I had around 21K miles on it. To me that's more than double the normal life I've got in the past.

Interesting timing on this topic. I've got 13k on a Metz front tire. Last one (pre-CT) only lasted 9k. Admittedly, 1 tire lasting longer might just be that, but I wonder confused confused

Changed out 2 years ago, have Avon Venom up front, got 23,375 out of that tire. Was a big difference from the 12,000 I got up front before going with the ct, have 19,000 on this one and will definitely get this season out of it.

I'd guess by that note you have over 50K on the scooter?

56 thousand and change, was hoping to get to the 60 thousand mark last season, but 6 weeks of rain didn't let that happen.
