Which tyre next
« on: July 08, 2019, 03:26:38 AM »
I have been happy with the way the Scorpion Trail 11s perform but my latest front tyre has done just over 10k and is showing uneven wear with the right hand side having worn much more than the left !
Has anyone else seen this in their tyre and, if you have fitted tyres other than Scorpion Trail 11s - what have you used and what do you think of them ?

once you see uneven tire wear and a flat spot even if the tire wear markers is still ok, change the tire. Its for safety and 10k is already awesome milage.

Im now using roadtec 01 and so far its been great to me. I wanted more traction thus the change from the scorpion trails to roadtecs

Got the Roadtec fitted on the front yesterday and put in just over 100 miles but in wet conditions.  Route included the Brig O Turk road and the Dukes Pass in the Trossachs so a decent test considering conditions - it felt fine.  Will be out for a decent run at the weekend so thatll be the real test.
Rear ST2 still has a few 000s miles left in it hence the staggered change.
For guidance - Cost for a pr of Roadtec 01s fitted to the bike 275 and only 5 more than the quote for trail 2s.

You won't be disappointed in them, Brian. Excellent tyre in all conditions....not tested on ice, though 😊
