TKC life, there are some who will swear they get 5K +, I ran a lot of sets and I never did. After 1,500-2,000 the rear was no longer any good for dirt. I could run another 1,000 or so after that, but why. I bought a second set of wheels and mounted TKC's on one set and Tourances on the other. Took me about 15 min to switch 'um.

BTW, this was on an 1150 gs

If you have never run a set you should try them, they are a very nice tire dual sport tire. Good grip on the road and ok in the dirt if ya watch yur front traction in corners..
That 5k for me is down to legal markers,so as Rad says their dirt advantage left the building way before that at maybe half that. But it depends on on road use, if you do lots of curves the middle of the tyres stays good, if not its fubar long before 5k miles.
