    I am slightly horrified at this thread. I thought that my new set of PR4's would be done when I came back from Cali this summer - but 8000km on, they're only about half worn. I'm going to get at least another 4-5K km out of them.

    Although to be fair, that was a lot of just cruising highway miles, hardly track days.

    PR4s have a nice hard centre though, unlike sporting tyres which are just soft all over

    PR 4s have incredible life. I got over 5k from a rear and 8K from a front, while doing a few track days in addition to normal commuting and scratching.

    So do the BT16 Pro's I have fitted but 2,500 to 3,000 miles is the max, for a rear, for me.

    Nothing wrong with either pal ..... carry on as you are doing

    Looking at all these low mileages on tyres in this thread I've come to a conclusion------------------------
