Itīs necessary to find another "spices" for the rubber to keep the compound durable... on the road .... as well off road.

Letīs say ...we give low percentage of higher wear....

We get more grip ... more safety

Itīs a deal ... isnīt it ?

My interpretation

More silica gives Mitas tyres better grip in all conditions and are therefore safer, but they will wear quicker.

Mitas tyres however still last very well and will still outlast most other brands.

ps don't know if you've found the secret ingredient to make them last longer or you're still searching for it

I'd like to know why they don't an E-07 in a 140/80-18 70R (or S or T).

I would love to try one on the back of my 950.

Thanks for the reply Mitas. I've heard plenty about silica and stuff but didn't know how it tied in .....

That sounds like it's probably a good thing, I've had a couple of "interesting" moments where a Mitas tyre has spun out while overtaking a cage. With other tyres the front wheel lifts up instead (which usually doesn't go so well either, unexpected wheelstand while turning == bad ).

How do we know which one we're buying? I just had a look at mine and don't see any dates on the sidewall.

Up here in Cairns we're lucky to find Mitas tyres at all, so I'm sure they take a while to go through their stock.

All tyres have a date code, generally in an oblong circle
Code is split into weeks and the year, therefore, this old Heidenau K60 was made in the 24 th week of 2006

you are absolutely right ...

Your "moments" are caused by a characteristic mixed from age and highly wear resistant tread compound.

Changes are done .....for more safety ... a bit less mileage.

Give your importer( and distributor) the chance to order a new stock and ask directly for newest production.



@sidetrack bob
thx...
couldnīt explain it better ...
