I've only ran Metz on my y2k lt since I have had it. I decided to try a Bstone on the rear last year and I have just shy of 14k on this tire and its not near as noisy as the Metz gets and has quite a bit of tread left. I normally got about 13 to 14k on metz. My metz on front now has 17k and is shot. The last metz front I replaced at just shy of 22k and it looked better then this tire. Nothing against the metz but I'll be sticking with the Bstone on the rear from now on. At about 8k miles my rear metz's were cupping and noisy. I'm thinking of trying a front Bstone now but I've very happy with all the miles I'm getting out of those front metz. I also like that the Bstones are quite a bit cheaper then the metz. Well after all of this what I was wondering is what kind of miles are some you of getting out of a front Bstone and if they cup or wear worst then the Metz.
