Re: PR4 Front - ME888 Rear === WoW!
On my '02 I used to scrape all the time and had rashes on the lowers. On the '05, it is a rare occurrence and a bit troubling if I touch. The front shows I'm using just about all of the tire that has groves on both sides.
Mike, I don't seem to recall you using the Bridgestone B-20 front like is commonly recommended here for better tire life. I suppose it is considered too hard for what you do.
I too am SHOCKED when someone reports 19k out of either tire. I am lax about checking pressures and bad about late breaking in to the middle of the corners but get in the 12k range on either end.
