You need a dual compound tire to help prevent the wear in the middle which the Q2 is, there are many others as well. Now if you had the original Qualifier that was a single compound tire, I wore out the one that came with the bike in 2k miles.
Interesting, I never ever could get 4 k from a Q2. To have the sides wear out first with that many miles daily seems really odd to me. I could only get 2-3 track days and then retire them to street duty and maybe get 2500 miles on them.

I have 2600 miles on my Pilot Road 3s already and they look brand spankin new! I'm at the hospital right now with my girl, but ill try and remember to post up the pic when I do make it home. For a sport touring tire I am able to get stupid low on the streets and it feels so predictable..never had an oh shit moment.

Why does no one run Pirelli Rosso II s ?

I'll be trying a set on my 12. With a 55 rear.... See how the dual compound holds up to the SoCal freeways.
