Just pulled my Kumho off a couple of weeks ago,to mount up the Wanli.
Just a little over 15 k on it,and down to the wear bars in the middle,and more wear on the left hand edge.
The tire did real well,as far as I'm concerned,at 34#,and mostly 2 up,but really figured I would get more mileage,as I'm a pretty conservative rider.
I think after the Wanli,I will try a michelin Alpin.
One thing for sure I will stay with the dark side.

Most likely would have gotten better wear/ milage if lowered psi 2-4
Glad your here to stay .

The tire wore pretty flat across the tread.
We seem to have a lot of road crown here,which I figured accounted for the left edge wear.
Even to the extent that is worn now,I still marveled at how quiet it was.
An MC tire would have been howling like a banshee.
