This was OEM tire on my new 2007 Roadstar and I got 8000+ miles on them. Replaced with same from Yamaha shop and paid a pretty penny for them. Dennis Kirk.com prices and speedy delivery at $10.00 is outstanding. I live in southern California and do a lot of riding through the mountains and desert area, tires hold up great! Highly recommend for price. I know there is a better tire and Dennis Kirk has them, just wasn't able to pay that amount at this time, but still cheaper than a shop! Will buy my next set of tires from DennisKirk.com!
