tire life and ease of service for them!

Hmmmm... 160hp and 122lbs.ft. of torque. Will a rear tire hold up to that much power for more than 4000 miles? My Uly xt is nowhere near that powerful and I only get 6000 miles out its rear. Does it have the ground clearance to use the tire to its edge? I`m interested but don`t want to be buying 3 tires a season, and how easy have they designed the rear wheel to come off? front wheel too for that matter? Center stand too! I miss having one on the Uly but have acquired front and rear stands for tire changes.
