Took my Pirelli off and put on another Kumho , because for me the Pirelli didn't stick as good as the kumho and the bike moved around when behind large trucks.

The Pirelli also has a slightly annoying "wag"
on grooved hwys and metal grated bridges.

Kumho --12,200 before the sips were down to cord on the left side.
Pirelli --16,400 almost to wear bars, now on 2nd Pirelli.

Part of the problem with the Kumho may have been a little too much air. I ran 32-34. On the Pirelli I use 28-29. Not sure but the extra air may have prevented the sidewalls from flexing and keeping more of the tread on the road.
