    I have the 130/90-18 on my DR650.
    Gonna have to replace it at 2000 miles. Currently at 1700 miles. Getting short on the center knobs.
    I run it hard on gravel, spinning in the turns, playing"flat track hero"
    Im happy with that mileage. It's very comparable to the Kenda Trackmaster II that I have run in the past. Great tire for the money. I think many people would easily get 2500 miles from one.

    Unlike @Rusty Rocket , I keep my front tire on the ground most of the time. Like Rusty, I ride a DR650. For comparison sake, I got 4,700 miles on my 130/17 rear. I still had some tread too. Photo taken on the dump run.

    This is my rear tire. I just checked the odometer reading and I have 3050 miles since install, but I swap wheels often to my Shinko 705's. I would estimate that this tire probably has about 2200 miles and maybe I can get 2500 before it comes off for a new one IMG_20200911_085235822.jpg

    Would you replace this tire? 2700+ miles on it.

    I would still ride that. I got 4300 miles out of my last set.

    About 750. I'll gamble on it.

    Good bet. Looks like it'll easily last that long.

    If you do, send it to me. I see a fair amount of life left. (unless you ride deep mud)

    I wanna lover these tires. Actually I do, except they don't last worth a damn. I've gone through two sets. I get about 1800 miles out of a rear and 2500 out of a front with some weird wear on that front. The search continues. Best I've had is Goldentyre GT723. Expensive, and getting harder to find. Worth it though

    I'm using up some TKC80 fronts I had with the Dsports on the back. At least this combo works good for me. Are you taking the rears off early maybe?

    750 no problem, 1,500 might be pushing the issue
