    Any comments on Dunlop 604 tires. They are a bit cheaper than Tourances and i am wondering if the compare favorably in wear and handling.

    Thanks

    They handle great, a little better off road for the first 2000 miles. then they begin to wear rapidly and cup. The front wears out way ahead of the rear. By 6000 miles they were totally shot. I went through two sets thinking the first one had to be an isolated incident. No such luck.The second set only lasted 5000 miles. This is simply unacceptable as it would have me buying tires every 90 days or so. The solution? Tourance, 13000 miles and will probably get 15000. No cupping, even wear, excellent handling.

    Thank You for the information. This was exactly the information I was looking for. I guess the Tourances are worth the extra $60 for the set.
