Thanks
No problem fitting them. I've worn out E07's and E09's in the 140/80-17, and they hang on fine with the pegs scraping.

The center doesn't wear so bad because the tyre is spread flatter.

An E09 I would expect around 7000kms with about 5~6mm tread depth left.

An E07 I would expect about 10000km with the same tread depth left.

I have no problem with them versus a 150/70-17. Much of a muchness.
