How many mi/km did the OEM tires last you? in Eighth Generation VFR's Posted Monday at 06:53 AM I managed 12,000Km out of the OEM Dunlop’s, considering we don’t have a lot of twistys around Townsville (and I weigh over 100kg) I thought that was pretty good (it was the rear that was flat spotted of course) I seem to be the odd one out as I had no issues with them at all, I actually replaced them with same Dunlop D222 Sportsmax and got the same mileage again. Michelin pilot 5’s we’re getting rave reviews when I was due for my third set so I gave them a try. I am also very happy with them, the only place I really notice a difference is in the wet, where the pilot 5’s are excellent. I am not someone who gets their knee down, but I don’t potter around either. I currently am up to 12,000km on the pilot 5’s and it looks l will get another 3 to 4K out of the rear, front looks good. I am hoping to head to the south east corner in a few weeks so I may get them replaced a little early just so I have a new set of tyres for the glorious twistys in that area. May be wasting $100 but figure it’s worth it as I don’t get down there very often. .
