I just got a Tourance (non EXP) mounted on the rear, and a front coming from SWMoto.com.
Did you get the stock sizes of 150/70 R17 rear and 110/80 R19 front?
I'll let you know what I think when I get the front mounted.

And, the FFE costs the least per mile to fuel!!!

i put 2 new ones on a month ago and noticed no difference

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting..Holy Shit what a ride!!

I'm just about to replace my Tourance tires with the Tourance EXP. My understanding is that the EXPs have better road life. Can anyone confirm that?

The EXP's seem to have a shorter life. I'm just ordered a new rear regular tournace from RockyMountainATV for $146 last night w/ free shipping - I didn't write down the milage when i installed it in April/May

I didn't write this guide. It magically appeared. You didn't read it. Knightstrom didn't write it. Knightstrom doesn't endorse it. In fact, YOU wrote it.

If you don't agree that you wrote this guide for your own use, do not follow this guide.

If you agree that you wrote this guide for your own use, and your Strom doesn't work after following this guide, its your fault.

Just fitted a set of EXP's, great tyres, did not notice any differnce in headlights though, interested to see how many KM's they will do and how they hold up overall, olnly got 7000km out of the trailwings.
