Wore Out the Michelin Primacy

Post  justbike on Fri Sep 20, 2013 6:21 am

Wore out the Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3 Run Flat on the 2012 Ultraclassic, got 27000 kms or 18000 miles out of it. Most of its life I ran it at 36 psi which was too high and wore out the center of the tire, of course you don't know that until its too late. The last 3000 I dropped to 31 psi and extended the life. As well the bike rode and handled much better at 31 psi. New one going on will always be run at 31 and see how long it goes. That is not bad though considering a lot of those miles were rode on trips in the south at temps over 90 degrees, a lot of mountains, with luggage.
Extremely happy with this tire and mounting up the same one again.

Wish I could go that wide on my 05'. You got a good thing going; don't fix what ain't broke, bro! 18k is nice, but to be expected.

I am totally happy with 18000 out of that tire, I learned that I used too high inflation though. When I changed to 31 psi it was amazingly better I will run that on this tire and see how it works out.
