Considering how much power he is laying down ?
I like to burn them and yes I got my money worth out of them. The fronts are still in great shape.

Granted they cost slightly less..just saying 25k miles ain't too bad.
My busa that I had made it 3000 miles before the rear tire needed replaced. Yes I said 3000

I have that same turbo setup at 5.2 psi. And that is the tire I am thinking about going with.

Thank you all for your responses.

Nitto 555R Drag Radials, same size as the stock rears.

Great in the rain.

Going to order the nitto's 555r 275/40r20. the cheapest I found is $319 a tire (from a local shop). Not bad price but has anyone got them cheaper than that? I don't mind paying that price but why should I if I could save a few $$$.

I love the vredestins, just hit 19k on them with numerous autoX days and a track day. That being said, my CBR's tires would last one track day and I'd put them on the wife's bike. Shoulders would be chewed through but the centers would be untouched!

There are only two options in life. Fight or flight. Most people run. Almost all people run. But not us. The difference between us and everyone else is that we run towards the gunfire. And that makes all the difference.
