I have had three sets of PR4s on my bike. I got 13-14,000 miles out of the first two rear tires but the third one was worn down to the wearbars after less than 8,000 miles. A couple friends who also ride NT700s have had the same experience with their last PR4. Has there been a change in the tire since it was introduced.

I know that I haven’t changed the way I ride or the roads I ride on…

While the handling was very good both the front and rear tires are about shot after 10,000 miles. That’s better than most tires but not what I was told I would get. I’m very diligent about checking and keeping pressures accurate so I’m not sure why these didn’t make the anticipated bench marks.
