My ride is a 2011 1100 Vstar I put a depth indicator on my tyres, and I had just under 3mm of tread left front and rear. I have Dunlop /k555F (front) K555 (rear) Im dissapointed as the Dunlops have only travelled 8000km approx 5000miles. I am going to change the tyres soon and I have narrowed it down to 2 different brands. Metzeler Marathons and Michelin Commanders. Price wise I have looked around and I can pick both brands for the same price so the $ factor doesn't come into it. But if possible if I could get some feed back from those of you that have used the Metzelers or the Michelins that would be great.
