Well I have 7500 miles on my E4s and donâ€™t see them getting much more than 10000. A very stable ride always @ 41 psi. One of the best and I have tried all the popular brands. But the sides are already very very close to the wear bars. The middle is holding up well. Donâ€™t know how any one can get 18000 miles on any bike tires never have I seen it done. Of course I have not been riding to long only 50 yrs. I am not sure what tire I will use in the future. I do really like the cornering traction, the super stable ride, less cupping than any of the others. But the mileage has me a bit concerned. I usually get 10000 to 12000 on the other brands.
12,000 miles on these tires and the front still looks amazing. I changed the back tire today. I really think it has a few thousand more miles in it, but i ride long distance and i get a little paranoid. Im not sure what they changed but its a vast improvement over the E3.
I reserve "5 Stars" for the ultimate tire - I ain't found it yet.
The E4s are a VERY good tire.
This is my first set, got 19,000 miles on the Front & Rear. Probably another 3-4k still left in them. I meticulously maintain 40F/41R psi at the start of every ride.
Living in Florida, instead of the 318 curves in 11 miles like the Dragon, we have 318 miles with 11 curves.
I went through 2 sets of Bridgestone tires at 18,000 miles per set, and I wanted to try the E4s due to the dual compounding - being harder in the center - for the riding style I have to accept in this part of the country, but I also wanted a tire that could let me play in the mountains as well. These are a great compromise for what I want.
I think what some people are referring to for the tar snakes is the harder center giving way to the softer outside and then the traction kicks on.
For the reviewer who had issues on the grated bridge - I have traveled many on both the 'Stones and E4s and never had that issue. I think my 40 psi in the front might help me there.
For future purchase? I'm getting more wear out of the E4s, but they cost more than the 'Stones. It'll probably honestly boil down to which company is having a sale as I get ready to replace the tires.
One thing I forgot to mention. I bead balance my tires. If you have never tried it, you should. As your tires wear the balance changes from when you first installed them. The beads keep the balance perfectly from the first mile to the last. This will eliminate your handle bar wobble, and better handling on grooved concrete.
I bought these tires about 5 weeks ago, and have almost 6,000 miles on them. Ran them in temperatures from 28Â°f to 103Â°f.Went thru 9 western states, elevations from 2500' to 10,956'(Bear tooth pass). The tires are still very round and no cupping like i experienced with my E3. Im not sure what they did so different, but its day and night on groved concrete. With the E4 I almost don't even know that I'm on it. Don't get that riding on ice feeling i got with the E3. Don't get me wrong I was mad when they stopped making the E3,but the E4 in my opinion are way better. I run them on a 2005 GL1800. My rides are usually 500-1100 miles in a day. This set has about 7-8 hours in the ran and not one slip. I can't speak for other touring bikes but as far as the GL1800, can't go wrong with these tires. I'll try and update my total mileage when i wear them out.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
