This may be a hard question to answer accurately since not everyone has an odometer on their bike...but -

Who here has the largest number of trouble free miles (no plugs, no flats, no irregular wear, etc.) on a set of tires?

Please post your mileage (or estimated mileage) and the brand/type of tire.

I think this will be an interesting thread and it will probably help people decide on their next tire chioce. I know it will help me!

350 miles on my 27" swamplites, still got the little flaps of rubber on them from the factory in some places. Very impressive.

Just figured it up correctly, and I have 700 miles on my swamp lights. Just bought them about 7 months ago.

Thanks for all the great info, guys. You helped me to make a good decision!

I have some 25" Bear Claws on the way. I am looking forward to logging some serious trouble-free miles.

I got a little over 200 miles out of a stock Rincon 680 set and they are going in the trash next week because I have to plug them after every single ride. They are starting to look like a porcupine.

It was a toss-up between the Bear Claws, the Bighorns, and the Swamp Lites. I got the tires from Rocky Mountain ATV for $231 shipped. Thanks to you guys I was able to make a well educated choice.

Keep posting those miles!
