  1. E3 Poor Mileage Tire Rebate?

    General MC Message Board
    So, I had new E3 tires put on my bike last summer. I thought the performance and mileage were okay, but recently noticed the rear tire was at the wear bars. I thought, What is that? 15,000 miles? That's okay. When I did the math, I found the rear wore out at 6,800 miles. The front is near the...

  5. Mixing Tire Brands?

    General MC Message Board
    I'm on my third set of tires on my 2012 Wing. Trying a Dunlop E3 in the back and like the faster steering. But soon I'll need a front tire. The current front Bridgestone feels good with the E3. Just wonder if I should buy another Stone, or try the full E3 experience. I usually ride within 10...

However, the tire has lasted 29,000 miles - far past the E3's I have put on my bike. The width is slightly...

  12. How do you scrub in your tires?

    General MC Message Board
    I'm having another set of Bridgestone tires put on my 2012. They lasted me about 8,000 miles. The front was down to the wear bars. The rear was almost there. My question is, how do you scrub in the tires? Last year, I took the Ride Like a Pro Course as a way to get used to the bike and scrub...

    General MC Message Board
    Hey folks... I'm in need of some experienced advice. I just switched to a new set of Bridgestone Exedras for the wing. I switched from a throughly worn out set of Elite 3s (~18K miles) and also went from a 70 series to a 60 series rear. OMG! This feels like a completely different bike...

    General MC Message Board
    I just went to my local Honda dealer and asked them to mount tires (Avon Cobras I purchased from Wingstuff) on my Wing. They asked where I got the tires, and I told them. I was then told that they will not mount "internet" tires because the dealer has problems getting them balanced...
