How many miles to expect on Goodyear Tripple Tead Car tire on VTX 1800R

Post  kabutl on Tue Jun 05, 2012 11:30 am

I have been looking but have not found anyone that can say how many miles to expect out of a car tire. This is a 70,000 mile tire am I to expect to get that kind of miles out of this tire?

It kinda depends on your riding style.... I've heard some say they have over 30,000 on them.

Way more than you'd get with a MT anyway. thumbup

I have about 12000 on mine and still looks great. I have the S not the R but same bike except you have a 16 inch rim and mine is 15. I have read many also that got well over 30000 miles on it and changed just to try something else. I love mine it sticks great and rides great!

I have that tire with about 15,000 miles on it and would guess about 15,000 more will do it.
Then I plan on going to a Run Flat, and cut that worry out of the riding.

I'm on my second GYTT with a 16" wheel. The first tire had about 30+K on it and then I found a screw in the tire. I normally would patch or plug but I had lots of steel belts torn so I replaced the tire. No idea how many miles on this one ... not many maybe 8K.

I had 36,000 miles on my TT when it got totaled out in April. The tire showed very little wear. I was hoping to get a minimum of 36,000 more. The totaling out had NOTHING to do with the tire. Broadsiding a car that blew a stop sign had much more to do with it. Will be going Darkside on my 2002 1800 R/S on my next tire change. Can't wait.
