These are the only tires I have used on my bike. And there is a good reason for it. They have excellent traction in dry and wet weather. And I have been getting just over 15,000 miles out of a set. From what I have seen in forums most people only get about 5,000 to 6,000 miles out of there tires. Some up to 10,000 miles. Of course this all depends on how soft of compound is used for the tire you buy. These are really good all around tires. My bike literally handles like a sport bike now. Which says a lot for a 1000 lb touring bike!
