Not one post yet in my studies of a CT at good tread, good pressure, having ANY problems aside of a few wobbles that often or most often
are caused by front end problems or worn bushings elsewhere. TWO Khumo tires run bald, at low pressure blew out.
Try getting away with that on a MT.
yeh. Good luck.

There was a thread with total miles. It was started a couple years ago but it was up in the hundreds of thousands then. With all the members there are now it would have to be well into the millions. I have heard of a blow out, but if memory serves me , it was riden to the side of the road a friend came and got him with a trialer. Blow outs are a fact of life they will happen with any tire. Be cafeful out there, but dont spend your whole life worrying about it, enjoy the ride while you can.
