    Looking to replace my tires, has anyone had any positive/negative experience with the Heidenau K76.

    Thanks

    I ran the front on a x-usa ride. I could not wear it out after 11 000 kms. Could probably get 20k out of one, not that I would ever want 20k out of tire, that would be really boring.

    Those look very interesting. I have not tried this version but I have k60s on my Tiger, They are more aggressive and are more of a 50/50 tire but I have 6k miles on with very little wear. So this may not help a lot but i can vouch for Heidenau.

    My tires getting worn as well .. Finding the speedo getting worse at high speeds ... My thoughts on tires I want something a bit taller than the tourances in a effort to get the speedometer back to reality .... yeah right .Can you get a total circumference of the k76 mounted ? and pictures ...was that 265 us or can ...?

    Any news on your K76s? Do you still like them? I am about to buy a set this week and would like to hear, how they have treated you.

    I have almost 10,000 miles on the pair.

    The back tire is good for 2000 more and the front could probably manage another 4000.

    I have used probably 80% on roads in all conditions, the other 20% on logging roads and trails.

    I am very happy with their performance.
