I'll get some pictures today. Starting to get pretty square-ish, but I've still got about 1mm to the wear bars on the rear. Yes, it is the front AND rear that have this mileage. The front tire still looks great.

Had I kept my tire pressure up all the time (I'm bad about checking it), I probably could have made it a full year on them. Looks like they'll be done by the new year and that will make them aprox. 14k or so miles old, or 6-7 months worth of tireage. Wow, I didn't realize I rode my bike that much this year. I mounted them 5/13 so if I make it to Jan. 1st I'll be happy!

seriously, Sport touring tires are the bomb. I'm just messing with my good pal Trig. I got over 10k off my bt-021's and only changed them because I was going on a cali trip that woul've put over 1,200 more miles on them. Didn't want to risk it but I'm sure they could've handled it.

why anyone would waste their money on sport tires is beyond me.

I love it when ass clowns ask me how "hard I ride?" when I tell them to get an ST tire. Then when I ride with them they get left in the dust. That quickly makes believers out of them. :D

Sweet! Thanks for the info guys, I'm definitely gonna try a sport touring tire next after my M3's wear out.

Here's what my m3 look like after ~2k miles of straight FL roads = squaring off



Plenty of meat left on the sides

IMO, ALL ST tires are good. I've tried Avons, Bridgestones and now Metz. They all perform well.
