    For rear street tires on the NC, I've ran PR4s, Conti Motion, and the stock Metzeler Z8. Some tires were previously used when I installed them, so it's hard to judge, but I generally get around 8000-9000 miles out of a rear tire. Pressure is usually 40-42 PSI cold. My records may be wrong as it shows I got about 13,000 miles out of a used/patched PR4. Who knows?

    I just replaced my rear Shinko Raven. I got 8,000 miles on it, could have gotten a few miles more but the wear bars were showing down the middle. Switched to a Shinko SR777, going to see how many miles I get on it. If less than 8,000-I will go back to the Raven.. I liked the Conti Motion pros for mileage, but 2 different rears cupped after a couple of thousand miles (constantly checked chain alignment and psi) and no wear bars in the middle...

    thanks guys. I would be happy with 8000 miles! I must be doing something wrong.
    alignment seems accurate, but maybe my tire gage is reading low and I'm overpressured? Will check.
