Re: 2009 K1200LT Front wheel wobble and warp
My 2000 has 158K, and has only run metzlers. I typically get 12-14K and change front and back at the same time-easier to make one trip to the shop.
This last trip however, first time my tires didn't perform as well as other times. Typical Metzler noise, which I can live with, but several thousand less miles. both tires seemed to wear unevenly, which was the first time it's happened to the bike. Trip was 10,300 miles, and thought I'd be fine.
Special shout out to Mac's Cycle in Clarkson, Idaho. They had a rear tire, mounted it in minutes, and only delayed our 48 state/12 day ride by less than one hour. Wish they were closer to WI.
Never tried Bridgestone or other brands. I'll give this new set of Metzler another try this season
