Re: Rear Tire Recommendations?
Choices...: Metz, Bridge, Avon
I've run combinations of all, like most everyone else. 6K on a Metz rear is not the norm. Air pressure is most often the culprit of killing the tire.
Avon, if you ride it like you stole it, but you sacrifice tire for sticking to the road.
Metz, for highway, normally the longest Lasting tire
Bridge, for a decent combination of the two above.
I personally love the Avons. Hardly ever had a pucker in a lean. I do have Metz on her now. Not bad, but I lost track of the mileage.
