    How is the handling? I need a new front and just put an Avon on the rear but I'm sure in 3k miles I'll need a new rear too so mine as well match next year.

    Looks familiar, my Avon did 4000 miles in one year with good tire pressure. Nitrogen for air. Avon says the will warranty. I don't think my results will be any different next year. Very interested in other solutions also....

    I agree with more is better than less pressure. I do lots of mtn riding.my 4000 mile, one year old tire ,won't be a safe ride next year

    Notice - I said "If it's any good"
    If I can get similar performance with a compromise why not save the $100.
    Rarely am I over 70 so speeds not a huge issue.

    I ordered one and am going to give it a shot.
