Simple question on "tire" mileage you get "Typically" from your LT..
** Keep anwser short ** Brand of tire unimportant **

#1 .. One up or 2 mostly
#2 .. Bias ply or radials
#3 .. mileage (aprox)
#4 .. open roads or twisties mostly
#5 .. Road surface quality you ride most

****************************
My ride:
2 up, 90% of the time.
Bias @ 9000 miles
Radials @ 5000 miles
Twisties
Chip seal & blacktop, very rough texture overall

Tire Millage

#1 .. 2 mostly
#2 .. ME880
#3 .. mileage (aprox)- 13,200 when changed out.
#4 .. open roads mostly
#5 .. Road surface quality you ride most = Highways.

Also, I had AV45ST on front when at 7000 it split in a strange way. Avon is replacing. B020 on back with 8000+ and looks good. Really like this combo.

Now have B020 front and rear. Seems to stear fast and for the moment, handles well.

Not a fair question, Scott. I have to ride slower two-up :rolleyes:


I ride the LT:
2 up, 80% of the time.
Bias
@ 6000 miles
Twisties (mostly in the Sierra Nevadas)
blacktop, average condition

Awesome mileage

#1.. One up 99%
#2.. Bias ME880
#3.. Rear 22,400 just changed / front 22,400 still using has lots of tread left
#4.. 70% super slab, 15% rural highways, 10% city streets, 5% twisties
#5.. Mostly concrete, some asphalt, 2% gravel

I don't do anything special. It's hard to believe I got so much better mileage out of my tires. I changed out my first set of ME880s at 18,000 because I was going on a Four Corner USA trip. I'm planning to put those tires back on because they still have 1/2 their tread.
