Great Tires but Short Tread Life

Tiger Rider - January 23, 2022

I only got 5000 miles out of Road 5's. So I switched back to Pilot Road 2's which are cheaper and last longer as I ride 12000 miles a year. I get 7000 miles from Pilot Road 2's and 4's. I had one front and two rear Road 5's. Both my rear Road 5's had a puncture and flat when almost new.

Hi Rolseth, Cracks in the tread can have different causes depending on their location on the tire. If found on the crown, it might be due to product aging or exposure to ozone or UV. If on the sidewall, it might be due to overheating due to the carcass working too hard (used when underinflated), aging or exposure to ozone/ prolonged exposure to light. If found on the crown and splits are deep and reach the plies or carcass, we would advise you to replace the product. If found on the sidewall, please make sure you check your tire pressure every two weeks (especially now it's getting colder), check your DOT to verify age and store your bike away from sunlight.
