Hey all! I just wore out my 1st CT, Falken ran at 44psi. What do you think of the wear pattern? If it was from a car I'd say too much air.

One of two possible problems. 1 to much air. 2 not enough twisty roads! That is exactly how mine wore @ around 15,000 miles!

Yes I would say to much air also. Is it a RF tire and how many miles did you get out of it? Did you ride mostly freeway long distance, the edges look good.

The Falken ZE-912 is not a run flat.

It is not a run-flat. Got around 22K miles of all LD touring! I should have the new Falken by Wednesday. So I guess I should lower pressure to about 42psi?

Thanks

If I were only to ride slab not hard in the twisties 35 to 30 is a comfy smooth (especially for 2nd up) number on BMT.
