Bike tyres are notouriously short-lived Toyos average about 12K (fronts and rears last different periods) as they are softer than Goodyears, but 20K out of a set of GY isnt uncommon!It had GS-D2's when I first got it and after I had the toyo's fitted there was no going back. About 70% is motorway driving and yes I do give it some when I drive . If I compare it to my bike (gsxr1000 02) I'm lucky to get 3k out of a set.
You can't get correct size R888 for 16" rims, I have been looking for weeks. I have just fitted on my road wheels Toyo R1R 205/45 x 16 allround http://www.toyo.com.au/Proxes R1R Press Release.htm They are very soft and I don't think they will last for more than 6000km BUT do they grip. I don't think they are sold in the UK.
If I had a wider rear wheel I would fit Bridgestone RE55's which I had on my 15's, as the rear to fit is a 225/45 x 16. Good hunting.
agreed i have GY on mine and the first set which were the originals when i got the car lasted around 17-18K (rears) so opted for he same tyre again, as this would do me 2 years. The fronts are still the originals but need to change them in the summer due to the fact there 6 years old. so more due to safety as a necessity than them being worn out!Bike tyres are notouriously short-lived Toyos average about 12K (fronts and rears last different periods) as they are softer than Goodyears, but 20K out of a set of GY isnt uncommon!
