    I ran a vredestein van tire on mine and got over 30,000 miles on it and never had any problems with it. If they kept making that tire I would have gotten another one. Changed it out for the michelin commander 2 tire. If it last as long as I like it to be, then I will stay with it, if not then I will get another car tire.

        Wow, such anger directed towards an inanimate object.

I don't notice any difference in turns at all which you would think there would be with the flatter profile. Bike is less prone to get stuck in road ruts or steel draw bridges now. Bike also is much less squirrelly while riding on grass than before. Two up riding is more cushy than before. I keep 45lbs pressure in it. No downside that I can tell and plenty of upside.
        At 45# I believe you should get at least 25,000 miles.
        I just changed mine last week at 28,000 miles. It had worn to the wear bars.

          Changed air pressure more times than I can count and it still WOBBLED anywhere from 60 mph on. Straight Line WOBBLE so bad that I just dropped it. Not my RS, the darkside idea. Was a Hankook 195/16and was the closest to Stock Spec. diameter I could find. RIPS on Commander II's

            Why bother with car tire when you can get a pair of high quality Mich C2's for the R* to your door for under $300 (less on sale) that will go a minimum of 2x more miles then the avg bike tire and in some cases 3x more miles.

              They said the 888's were a long lasting tire too...

              Give it up Jaybo. It's not worth the aggravation.
