    What ever brand you choice be sure that the tires meet or exceed MFG load rating for best wear.................

    Why replace both?
    I find on my bikes that I go through two rear tires for every front. Most people I know have about the same wear history. Just replace the rear and save some $$$.

    I have had the same results on my Dyna. 2 rears for every one 1 front. I run the stock HD Dunlops.

    I only have 11k miles and had to replace the rear on my Wide Glide. I really thought I would get more like 15k but I was on the line at 2/32.

    I ride one up, no extra gear and rarely get over 70.

    I have no beef with the Dunlop other than I thought I should get more miles out of it.

    When I had my deuce, I liked the Metzler 880's, but I seem to like the Dunlops on my road king.
