    I don’t buy them for longevity, ,, just traction

    I keep a spare set on rack , mileage is very relative to what the tyres subject to ..

    I nurse them on road , use em in dirt

    I don’t have a figure , I stopped caring a long while back ..

    just want tyres I can be confident of .

    No just the Tractionator. I mount the 140 because it's $100 cheaper gets the same mileage and is easier to get the bead off when fixing a flat.
