Well I've owned my 2010 GL1800 for 13 or so months now and I've put on 12,800 miles weekends only and wore out the stock Dunlop tires whereby I have put two new Dunlop Elite III on the day before yesterday. When I had the tire put onto the rims at the dealership I asked them to NOT balance either the front or the rears. I then took it out on its first run hoping these Centramatics worked as I was told they would. They work absolutely perfectly and the bike is as smooth as it can get. These are well worth the price and I now know as I begin to wear these tires in and rubber is removed from varous areas of the front and back tire my tires will always be perfectly in balance making for a smooth ride until the next pair go on about a years from now. I would suggest this product to all Goldwings and if they work for the other bikes as well as they did for me I'd adbise them to buy them now. I only wish I has a set to try on my 2012 Honda Civic EX commute vehicle. Wink Wink !!

Okay, let us know how many miles are on your tires when you next change them.

That's a good honest review, thanks. Like Paul says, keep track of the miles and give us updates.

I have Centramatics on my 08 wing. Had them put on when I had Dunlop E3s and the front tire had some moderate cupping. I rode another 2K or so and switched to my favorite tires, Bridgestones. So now I have a little over 4K on them and am wondering how the Centramatics will affect cupping and tire longevity. (no rim weights) I will keep you posted.

Ride long and often.

I will do that. I suspect if all goes well I should get 12K - 15K miles from these tires as I did the stock Dunlop. I'd like to get more but since 99% of all my riding is done in the hills from sea level to 8000 feet up andbetween Ca and Nv up a down the coast I'll probably go through brakes and tires faster than most people. We'll keep you posted especially if I se tire wear really fast.
