I have 7500km on mine and it is past the wear indicators but I still have a little tread left. That is on a stock Bridgestone.

All right, you can all call me a [:M25] but I just replaced a Michelin Pilot Sport which I got around 18,000km (11,250 miles) out of. That was pretty extreme but I usually get between 13,000 and 15,000km (8,000 -9,400 miles).

Of course, I run 42psi cold in the rear tyre and don't usually nail it in a straight line from stoplights. Oh, and I avoid straight lines wherever possible.

Umm, well I got 9000km from my first, 4500km from my second, and expect about 3500km from my third. But that's with quite a bit of track riding thrown in :D (So plenty of rubber left in the middle)

I also got a used michelin macadam for about 3000km while I was waiting for my "real" tires to arrive, and it didn't show any signs of wearing, that's one rock hard tire. My first tire ran out of rubber in the middle but still held up for about 500km :D

If you don't ride track I don't see a problem getting 10k out of a tire. I rode my stock Dunlops to about 7k and still had alot of go on them when "I got a nail in my rear" (ok no jokes please) so I think it would've gotten to 10.

I got 8500km out of my stock 207..
On my 208 I got about the same, it looks like this now..

It's a little hard to make out, but that white stripe is the belt coming through, its like that around 45% of the tire. Also its a total slick, no tread left at all, and not only on the bottom, and inch up the sides too, hehe.

I can't get more than 6,500 km's (4,000 miles) out of any tire I've used to this point. The stock Battlax lasted around that much, not even. ALL depends on the kind of rider you are and riding you do.

About 4500 miles from a Pilot Sport, much the same from a D207, just put an 010 on, think I might get a little more from that.

11,200 from a Pilot Sport????????? Do you know the engine revs above 2000 rpm? :)
