I got about 3.5k out of my TKC rear, and I actually still have it with maybe 20% left, but I dunno if I'll justify putting it back on anytime soon. It's a wonderful tire, always grippy rain, shine, dirt or pavement, but it wears oddly. Goes down to what appears like 50% of the tread block in less than 1000 miles then takes forever to wear down to the bars.
Exactly why I run it. So far, it seems like the TKC front will wear at the same rate as the K60 rear. Unfortunately, my TKC front had a 2k head start . . .
