Tires Tires Tires

Well after 12500 miles I think my PR2's have reached the end of their useful existence, anyone noticed ant tire sales floating around out there? Going to stick with the PR's since I haven't had any other tire that treated me as well for the entire life of the tire and I like not having to think about tires when I ride.

I have the 4's on mine. Love them. They're awesome. I got them last February/March.... Motorcycle Superstore was having a sale. Keep your eyes peeled and they pop up right around this time as so many are going to be taking their bikes out of hibernation shortly. People usually start to do their spring stuff now so they don't miss out on any sunny days in March.

What kind of mileage is everyone getting from the 3's and 4's? I've never gotten 12500 miles from any Motorcycle tire ever and my front has a few thousand miles of life left but I'm going to swap them both, anyone running powers on the front and roads on the rear?

I'm on my second set of 3's, I got out of 10k the last set. I'm very happy with them, I had bought the second set about one week before the 4's were released so I would have tried those had they ben available. I have ridden through some serious rain with them and never had a problem at posted speeds, even through some surprise puddles and runoff.

So far, got about 4k on mine. Didn't ride as much last season because of the kids. Hoping to get 3 seasons out of them. Maybe you can get more mileage if you rotate them

Well, just ordered a set pf PR3's from AmericanMotoTire.com for $295 shipped, found my old order for the PR2's, ordered them almost exactly 2 years ago(2/12/15)
Two years/12500 miles not too shabby for a set of motorcycle tires

Ran Bridgestones before the PR2s didn't like the way they wore and the handling was vague and sketchy when they got a little wear on them

Cheers mate. Opinion greatly appreciated. Might go back to the OEM Pirelli Angel. 17000 km's and still with a little meat left.

On my first set of pr4s after I was unable to get pr2s in the size I needed. So far its wearing well. I think it gives greater feedback in the wet than the pr2s. In the dry, I can't really tell much difference except for when I was on the track. But I suspect that has more to do with how responsive the front end is compared to the numbness of the 919 front end.

I got 14,500 on my last set of PR2's including 2 trips to the drag strip with the associated quick burnouts, and I wasn't down to cords or anything when I switched them out, had a big trip coming up so I swapped them.

I got just over 10k on my last set of PR4's, and that included 2 track days and a trip to the drag strip. The pilot roads are better than anything else I've used for sure.

Had two sets of BT023s (second rear I ran a BT016 front) vague and sketchy handling, never really got any good feedback from them and they were gone in less than 8000 miles

Nice rubber. Is that a Blue Heeler in your avatar? What's a yank doing with an aussie cattle dog? Does he like to nip people on the back of the legs? They have a lot of dingo in em. Tough as nails.

Nice PR3's. Semi on topic....Anyone know how a Bridgestone BT-023 compares to the PR3??


Just saw this...anyone else have experience?

Seems FZ-07s come with either PR3s or BT-023s. Guess which I got

Just a quick heads up, that $50 Visa card for the S21 is over at the end of the month.

IIRC, you also have to fill in the forms before mid April.

I think the total for a pair was $166 after you account for the Visa card.
