2 rear too 1 front tire?

So I was talking with a buddy of mine and he tells me he needs a new rear tire and I said why not get a set! And he said that the front tire is suppose to last for 2 rear tire life span or however you say. So I laughed cause I've never heard that! Is it true or is he trippin cause my tires always wear even together. Btw he rides a GSXR 600 lol

Re: 2 rear too 1 front tire?

If the bike only gets mild street duty, this will be the case.
Another story if the bike is run on the track.

Re: 2 rear too 1 front tire?

Logically, front last longer, yes... Rear tire usualy wear faster (softer compound, etc.)

Current bike : Z1000
Shortened oem slip-on, K&N filter and PC3, rizoma levers, sprocket kit

Old bike : YZF-R6
MJS shorty slip-on, K&N filter

Re: 2 rear too 1 front tire?

The Dunlop NTEC DOT fronts wear like iron. I usually get at least two rears to a front, and even then I am changing the front with more life left in it.

The street tires I have on now (Q2's)?.....we'll see.



I find a Soap Box comes in handy to get on my High Horse!
