Keep in mind, if you are a big dude or ride double aim for the higher pressure 41/40. If you ride single and are a smaller person 38/36 should be plenty. I have 8500 on mine with lower pressures because I'm not a big person, no cupping.
After 7K I'm just about worn smooth in the center of the rear tire. Front probably has 1K left. They're the Bridgestones & I ride 2 up 1/4-1/3 of the time. I ran 42psi 4 6K then dropped 2 39/39 as it wasn't as harsh. Now 4 fun I'm runin' 30/30.......................
I've got Metzler 880 Marathons and according to Metzler's tire guide it should run 40 in the Front and 42 in the rear. Ride like a rock but the tire wear seems to be what it should be for the 5K I have on them.
After 3,000 miles I took my pressure down to Honda recomendations and very shortly like not even 800 miles I had to replace the fron Dunlop. I now have over 6,000 miles on the Metzler front tire at 38 PSI and it hardly looks worn. I keep 40 in the rear. The front and rear are both Metzler. The only drawback I have noticed in the Metzler compared to the Dunlop is a little more vibration. And the sticking feel around corners is not as good as the Dunlops.
Has anyone running 40/40 checked a tire pressure after a few miles of Summer riding?
It will be in a range of 44-46 PSI, which is kind of riding on bricks.
I keep my at 36/38.(male, 5'10",200lbs, stock [email protected])
