My Pirelli is wearing just a smidge more on the right than the left. Not sure why. When I say smidge, that equates to the right side having worn .025" more than the left side. Not anything I'm gonna worry about. :thumbup:
How many miles do you have on the tire? What tire pressure are you running. I found out that the Falken loves the 44psi's and mine wear even all the way acrossed here in PA.
Wel lI will tell you what thats some pretty good milage out of the Falken. The last one i ran i got 12,000 and it was bald no more miles left in it LOL. I would bump up the air pressure to 44 and that will wear on the center a little more and maybe give you even wear till the tire is shot :thumbup: Good LuckOutside is facing to the left, approx. 14k on the tire, there isn't enough in the wallet to have to shift it to the left side, running 42psi.
Interesting !The tire is asymmetrical which is why there is an Outside and Inside on each side of the tire. The outside is more of a summer tire design, the center is a rain tire design, and the inside is a winter tire design. That is one way of making an all-season tire, use 3 different tread designs on a single tire.
Anyway, the summer side should wear better and the winter side will have better traction usually.
Make sure you mount it the proper direction for your vehicle. :shrug:
only if you drive on the left side of the road. in the US the crown would put the bike in a slight left turn relative to the road surface which would seem to indicate more left side wear to me.Believe it or not, the reason the right is wearing slightly more is because almost all roads are crowned in the middle which makes the right side of any tire wear more. Most of the time it's not noticeable. At least this is part of the wear problem.
