have been locking for new tires and found heidenau k37 front and k60 rf rear and hack. they are a lot cheaper so I can afford some heavy wear, but yet 3000km on the rear is a little to much.

any ideas?
That is the nature of the TKC period Metzler Marathons of some sort, or if your bike has a 17" wheel look for a car tire you like they have lots in Europe.
