My rear tire is almost shot. I have 3800 miles on it so far the outsides are still have some tread left but the center the tread is almost gone. I ride mostly in ND and MN were basically there is no such thing as a windy road road. Most of my longer distance rides I do have luggage with and i'm about 240#s so not sure if that has any effect on tire wear. I do keep the air pressure between regular and max load recomendations just because i'm a lil b*****. I don't have much for strips left so I think I want something that is farely good for grip when turning but also was hoping for somethign that will last atleast a full summer. Anyway I was looking through a supplier book at work and saw a Dunlop D205 Sport tire that was rated as a Sport Touring tire and listed as standard equipment on some of the b***** CC sport touring bikes can't remeber which models. Is there any other tires like this or any suggestions. I read somewere about some of the touring tires were they are the softer compound on the sides and harder compound in the center for longer wear life. Thanks for any suggestoins.
