Last report - Part 2
It has taken 18 months to put 12K miles on the current set of PR-4s. This was the first pair mounted at the same time.
Pressures are 32/38 normal and 34/40 when loaded for trips.
Mileage has been about half chasing Bernie or riding around NF/SG, a quarter on trips to western NC, and a quarter high speed droning to TX.
The front has a distinct raised area in the middle probably due to the harder compound. There is more wear on the left shoulder than right and no cupping. Handling is still very good with smooth transitions.
Looks like it could go another 2-3K miles easy but that would get into the evil handling zone.
The rearís wear indicators are about gone and there is flattening down the middle. Looks a lot like the prior tire at 13K miles.
It still handles very well and could go another 1-2K miles.
I have a trip coming up and donít want to get into that ďevilĒ zone so a new pair is on order.
Iíll continue with the PR4-GTs as I can count on 12K+ good handling miles, they handle the wet well, and are quiet.
