I dropped the rear rim into Boyd’s this morning for a tyre change. The TW302 Trail Wing fitted in December last year at 41958km was done at 47635km, so only 5677km on that tyre which I consider fairly low. The tyre was a bit of a @nordieboy special however in that it had hung on the wall for about 3 years before being fitted, I don’t know if that has any effect on a tyres life.

It’s a bit sad that I had only done 5677km in 11 months.

The new tyre is another Mitas E-09
