    Went back to MC tire. Dunlop winter tire wore out faster than expected

    After 11k miles, I noticed my Dunlop Winter Sport RunOnFlat had center wear, probably 2-3k of life left, but my front Elite 3 needed replaced. I had kept it at 41-43psi. I switched to the Bridgestones G704/709. I know, new shoes, but the flickability of MC tires are better. Iím glad I tried out the darkside, but Iím willing to pay more for better performance.

    I think you had way to much air, that why center wore out. I run 33 to 35 pound cold that equals around 38 to 39 hot. I have worn edge off of tire riding Arkansas but I have never worn out the center.

    You're making a smart, safe move. MC tires are safer. They have to handle better, they're made to lean to the sides.

    It was quite noticeable going back to MC tires. Plus, I no longer have the hassle of trying to find someone to put a CT on a motorcycle rim. Guy who put my CT on quit doing it.
