You should get between 5-7K miles out of a single rear. It is a dual compound tire. A touring center and I believe, Pilot Power equivalent on the sides. Great commuter tires, and will certainly do the job on twisties. I know of one member who even instructs trackdays on a Road 2 rear, so it can be done, but not suggested.

BUT for the price, the BT-016 or BT=021 are great tires as well, and cheaper. Get with Patrick or Jon at SCRC (site sponsors) they can hook it up.

You get what you pay for. Not cheap but will last longer than almost any other brand.

I had them and was happier with the bt021's then the pilot roads. That is just my nonscientific opinion though.
