How much millage can I get out of the front tire (Pirelli Diablo SuperCorsa SP V2)? I don't race the bike. I only use it for commuting and rarely ride hard. I just changed out the rear at 9,100 miles - replaced it with Bridgestone BT-016 Pro Hypersport.

Many factors come into play - the road surface quality, road temp and how aggressive you hammer it out of curves, speeds ran, engine braking, ect.

For example, I only get about 2,000 miles out of a set of Bridgestone S20evo, 4,000 or so out of Bridgestone T30evo. I've got as many as 6,000 out of PR3 and as little as 2,500 out of PR3. There's no way I could milk 9,000-plus miles out of any tire, front or back, lol.

Idk how you managed 9000 miles with the corsa; you also chose an old tire to use as a replacement.

if you want a high mileage tire go buy sport touring tires; angel ST; pilot road 2,3,4,5; t30 evo.

A buddy of mine told me to go with the Bridgestone - said they were better suited for my style of riding.

I used to run Pilot Road 4's and they were good for about 17000km's.

Everyone I know run Conti RoadAttack 3's now, and just got a front, will replace the rear too eventually. They've been good for similar mileage.

I commute daily, so need longer lasting tyres. Heard the PR5 is even better than the PR4, but loving the Conti's so will stick with them.

Ride carefully - You are invisible.

I'd rather be next to a rider that can maintain a controlled wheelie than a muppet on their phone.

nothing wrong with bridgestone; just saying you bought an old tire that I'm not sure if they even make anymore.
