I mounted front and rear TKC 80s for the first time right before D2D this year. I got just about 3k miles out of the rear and still a tad left before the wear bars. Going to use it up commuting before changing. But, the point is, near this amount of wear they still handled a rain soked Denalli Highway just great. I recommend TKC 80s in crap and stick like glue on street. I am trying the Mitas for the first time this or next summer. Might be visiting the middle east this year.
