Still, it wasn’t too bad, and there was plenty of tread depth left, so in the interest of science, I rode on. Some 2,500 miles later, I’d learned all I wanted about those durable Pirellis. For the performance they delivered, I consider 7,500 hard miles a remarkably useful life. And there was maybe another 2,000 miles to be had for a freeway-commuting cheapskate not fretting about turn-in feel. Excellent tire.
