i just got back from my ride to Alaska and back 8875 miles and i swapped to a 140 hideneau rear for trip home and for the nasty mud in Dawson city for the D2D rally .. one the added height was like putting a 16 tooth front sprocket on her kept rpms at 70 mph at 4600 rpms all day .. the tread is different from the 130 to the 140 with a added center bar for better load handling on freeway .. with a new chain and sprocket it was close to the chain guard but cleared swingarm fine .
as for mud and sand wow did it hook up nice and it was thick baby shit mud ..
and on the road i loved the added stability and better top end gearing on the long haul home .
as for wear they didn't sqare any worse than the 130 like others mentioned i guess it depended on your air pressure if you keep real soft they will but i rode with 99 lbs of gear and kept rear around 36 lbs of air .
but for me im sold illbe keeping these for a while ..

recession is when your neighbor looses his job
depression is when you loose your job
recovery is when Obama looses his job
