Did a search in forum but found nothing about the new Excedra Max. Currently have a set of the standard Excedras (704 & 709) that need replacement soon. Have about 9000 miles on them and they are down to the wearbars. Curious if anyone has any experience with the new "Max" version especially with regard to tire mileage. I ran Dunlop E3s before and they produced much better total mileage, but Bridgestones had better traction and ride. I have read the Excedra Max delivers more miles than previous version yet retained good traction and ride of the old tire. But then that what the advertisement says so I need real world feedback.
