My Dunlap wintersport with 21k all of a sudden started showing significant wear on the left side to the point I am going to change it out for a new Michelin Pa3.
I am very satisfied with the life of my Dunlap, in fact I may go back to it some day?
I am just kinda puzzled on how it wore more on the left side :shrug:
I think it may be possible that the crown of the roads does it?
I only ride the twistys about 2 times a year other than that I am a flat lander :?
Has anyone else seen this kind of wear on there tires?

I would say you're spot on OWB. Running the same tire and loving it. I will replace it with the same when the time comes.

MOST people (I think) tend to make Left turns somewhat more aggressively. I have heard/read that the crown of the road does not affect wear on a tire, but I'm not so sure that it does not contribute a teeny little bit to the wear.

I only have about 1,000 miles on the current rear tire (E3). I'm lookng for a spare rear rim to put the CT on it and keep the E3 as a spare. I'll keep looking. Thanks

Well, if you didn't have so much $$$ in your wallet the left side wouldn't wear like that.:thumbup: Thanks for the report...21k is outstanding.

miles

I have just over 11k on mine and it isn't showing much wear. I'm really impressed at how the shoulders are holding up. Seems better than the Kumho I had before. Another thing I like about this tire is that it doesn't search as hard for the low side of the groove.
