About Motorcycle Tire

Motorcycle tires are manufactured by many of the same companies that make tires for automobiles. Chances are the motorcycle tire you are replacing says Dunlop, Bridgestone, or some other major tire manufacturer. Motorcycle tires are made to different tolerances, however, and you should take some care as to the tires you put on your bike.Your tires are the only part of your bike that remain in contact with the road, and their failure can result in serious accidents and possibly serious injuries. If you buy anything other than brand-new tires, you need to ensure that there is plenty of tread left in them and that there are no weak spots on the walls of the tires. Retreads should only be purchased from a source you trust.When shopping around for motorcycle tires, you need to look for tires that are made for your intended use. If you will be doing mostly street riding, standard sport tires are your best bet. These tires provide a combination of grip and durability. Racing tires can wear out quickly and corrode with repeated use. Knobby dirt-bike tires will give you very little traction on paved roads.It should go without saying, but it is absolutely critical that you make certain you are buying the right size tire. Some bikes can only fit tires of a particular size, and if you don't perform the proper legwork before purchase, you could be left with an extra, useless tire. Depending on where you buy it, you may not be able to exchange it for the right size, especially if you are buying used tires, which makes it all the more critical that you know what tires will work with your bike.

Just a little advise about tire balancing.......

It has come to our attention, that some "motorcycle shops", have reverted back to the procedure, known as "static" wheel balancing.
A system that does not take into account "notched" bearings, or even worn bearing
There defense for using this system is :
That's how mitchelin, Dunlop, and others do it at the "race track", implying that if it is good enough for "Joe racer", it should be good enough for you.
Well, no.
As with other things "racing" ie: clutches, brakes, tires, spark plugs, ignition timing, air filters, oil, undersized drive chains, and sprockets, carbon fiber wheels, and exhaust, and many, many other things, that are OK at the track, BUT have NO PLACE in the real world, of street riding, commuting, and touring

I get in the 3k-8k range on an F3

Mostly depends on how I'm riding. 3K is certainly not unreasonable for someone that spends their whacking the throttle or doing a lot of track days.
One of the negative parts of motorcycle reality is that what you save on gas (vs a car) is almost eaten up by what you spend on tires.
It's hard to get a set of sportbike tires for less than $250, with a $300-$350 figure being more likely.
Cycle Gear used to (and may still) give you 10% off tires and "chemicals" if you had one of their Visa cards and used it for purchases.
Here's one thing. Sportbike tires are fairly soft - that why they stick as well as they do

Like Author says, I had mine bubble up in three

Places. I was riding at night and running 70 or so on the interstate for 100 miles and really didn't notice anything.
The next day I took it to go get parts and felt it, the knots were pretty nasty looking and the tire was about 1/3rd used up. I go through about 2 1/2 sets of tires a year, so they don't have time to get "stale" unless they arrive that way.
I liked um pretty well up to that point, they'd lay over nice on the road and seemed to inspire confidence. They were more dirt oriented then the Dunlops I'd been running and made more noise. I'll probably stick with my Lops, all in all they've served me well and I've grown confident they'll hold togeather till the cords show
