Inspect and check tire pressure often. This is the most important tire-maintenance function you can perform. Refer to your machine's documentation for proper maintenance. Always give tires a gentle "run-in" period of 100 miles to get the feel of new tires--this means they should not be subjected to maximum power, abrupt lean-over, hard cornering, etc. Always match the front and rear tires for optimal handling, safety and performance. Mixing radials, or mixing radials with bias or belted-bias tires, may adversely affect handling and stability.
The charts and information on this page do not imply interchangeability. Consult your machine's manual to determine correct replacements, clearances, compatibility and stability, load-bearing capacity, speed rating, radial vs. non-radial, pattern and tread compound requirements, inflation recommendations and front-to-rear tire matching. Wrong selection can result in tire failure or loss of control with serious injury or death.
Comments On May 07, 2013:Used on a 1999 bmw r1100rt at 38psi. I'm a 200lb rider who mainly commutes. This tire got me 12,000 miles and in typical RT fashion, wore out the left side of the tire first (wear bars still good on the right hand side). There is a bit of cupping on the left side of the tire, but this tire wore better than the Metzeler Marathon me880.
I'm mostly happy with this tire with my main pans being the cupping, and hard compound in colder weather. Once in the 70's, this tire performs great.
If you're doing straight math on tires, I don't think you can beat this tire, though other ST tires may grip better. Despite my review. I'm going to try out the non GT tire as the RT may be a little light for this tire.
