Just looking at US retail prices for rears tires, the Saharas at $161 retail are the second most expensive tires there are, out priced only by the Michelin Sirac at $177.

Dunlop 907, Maxxis 6006 & 7000, IRC GP110, Bridgestone E660, Metzeler Karoo, Pirelli MT21 and Conti TKC rears in 140/80 or eqivalent all run between $75 and $110 each.

I didn't include any of the more street oriented tires... the Sirac being rated a 25S/75D and the most "street" of all tires listed.

Interesting... the two tires that potentially will deliver the highest mileage, are also the most expensive.

So, do you want fresh knobs every 3K miles or so for about $85 average... or do you want 5-6K on a rear tire, for about twice that?
