These guys are selling out fast! I am about to pull the trigger, but the only rear they have released is the 140/80-18. After reading up on all the 150 vs 140 threads, I am wondering if I should wait until the 150/70-18 is released. Anyone want to chime in what they would do?

i have an SE so i'll probably give it a go on the 140 size but if it were me, I'd wait for the 150 for the ADV. more weight and more than likely a bit more durable as you'd have a wider footprint to distribute the wear over, so you should get much better mileage and handling out of the 150 size compared to the 140.

but then again what do I know... :lol3

not in English but it does have subtitles. looks good for the tire if you are wanting something durable but still handle some off road decently..

Thank you. I dont leave until August for my 2 week road trip north. Ill just wait. This tire seems good for my needs of road/gravel time. We will see just how well it works and how long it lasts.

Id be interested to know how they go- post an update once you get them and you have a chance evaluate dirt & street.

I think it only had 3000km on it and it was 30% worn. He was saying it should last the 10,000km to get him to Tashkent.

You're right. I assumed new tires were mounted since Km 0 and actually it was at the 10,625 km mark so yes, he's showing the tire wear at 13,124 km, just 2,500 km later...
