Seems the guys getting real high mileage out of Mefos run real high pressures, like 38-40 in the rear and 36 or so in the front. That makes the bike ride real hard though.
That is right on the tire pressure.It does make them ride a little harder,but not that noticeable on blacktop.I have put on another set of tkc 80s to give them a second chance.so far this is my observation after 2000 miles on the tkcs
The first set I ran to much air pressure30/34 rear-28/32 front
Now run (on road) 22/26 rear-26/30 front
off road 15 rear-15 front---no rimlocks
handle mucho better on gravel/dirt/mud
so far better milage on wear than the first set.
Strange thing about the tkcs,seems like they wear out to about 1/2 tread fast than run forever on the second 1/2.
They are not great tires on wet pavement,but will grab nicely on dry.
So what I am doing this winter is to run tkcs (new set in basement) thru the winter and spring.But I will go back to Mefos after the end of April.lotta tires and lots of choices.But in imho,mefos are hard to beat.Kay and I just came back fron Ohio from an Enduro type ride where I ran tkcs and she ran a worn out mefo on the rear aired down to 15psi and ran the coarse only going down once due to the tire letting her down in some mud.
Well,there's my penny and a half.
Here's a pic or two from the ride
