wow, you must be driving hard as I usually get 10,000 + on the rear and 20,000+ on the front. The only time I had that bad of rear milage was a cheng sing on my 1000 which, at the time, had a sidecarI only got approx 4500 mi on last set any sugestions
Take a look at the cars in parking lots, lots of them with front wheels black from brake dust. I know people who can't get 20,000 miles out of a set of front pads on their car.Fast acceleration, + hard braking will sure kill tires. I'm amazed at the (sheeple) on the streets, that go pedal to the metal from stoplight, then almost skid up to the next light, and repeat that cycle all the way through town. What a car/tire killer, not to mention mileage, and brake pad killer. Go figure.
I must admit I am surprized. I always gotten at least twice as many miles from the front tires as the rears. I know I am a very conservative driver and I do not wear out brakes or rotors either.:baffled:If you have Dunlop 177s, you should get around 7000 miles front and 11000 miles from the back. If you have 491s (fitted to loads of US models back then), you can expect at least 12000 miles front and 18000 iles back.
I'd have to agree that I've always replaced 2 backs to one front, and alot of my riding is touring and not abusing. (82 wing with lops elitte II)I must admit I am surprized. I always gotten at least twice as many miles from the front tires as the rears.
Get rid of the rain down there, I'm riding my bike down to Medford to meet my brother who's riding up from Stockton, CA so we can do some riding together.I just saw that this morn on a fairly clean van. The rear silver hubcaps were, - - - , well, - - - silver. The fronts were completely black! Hows the weather up there? Rain for the next few days here. drat!
