New Rear Tyre

After about 9k miles the rear is looking a little close to the end of its life.

The question is what to replace it with?

I have been using Maxxis Detour front and rear and this is the second rear to have come to end of service life.

Originally they went on as a pair, but different wear rates mean that the current front is about 4500 miles old or about 8500 from replacement.

Figures indicate then that when the rear goes on soon, they may both need replacing together again in about 9k miles.

So looks like another Maxxis? Some road tyres look cheaper and as most of my riding is on road, I might go that way.

Always fun though!!!
