it's a rear-wheel drive vehicle, and you can't rotate the tires.

It carries the weight under hard acceleration, bends and conforms more (at least in street riding), and is almost always imperceptibly slipping and spinning under a heavy throttle hand like myself...Squares them off in a hurry.

I do 2 rears to a front.

My front and rear go at the same time usually between 3 and 4 thousand miles.

That was with dunlops, michelens and bridgestones

incorrect tire psi can also affect tire WEAR.

I'm waiting for my second rear to come in the mail, But the front has a lot of meat left. The sport attack only lasted 3000 miles, but i really like the tire and will stick to it.
