Re: Tires for K1200LT
Right now I am at 13,7XX on my front Avon Storm 3D, and 53XX on my rear. I am an Avon fan, and at first I didn't like the tires, but I am in love with them again. They started out very squirmy, I got a shimmy at 110 indicated passing a semi with a strong side wind, but I haven't had it since. They are typical Avons, amazing wet grip, no problems with the tar snakes, and I rub my boots on the asphalt every once in a while. My front has 3/32 left and my rear has 7/32. I just got back from a trip to the California coast, and only lost 1/32 off the front. That is better than I expected.
I don't plan on running any more Metzlers if I can avoid it, but the 888 tread pattern really does look like it will be quieter than the 880.
