extremely long life, rear is better than the front IMO. overall really good tire

K3 Warbeast - World's highest mileage DL1000, +433,000 miles. Ride More, Type Less.

If you want to read more there's already an Anakee III thread. If you wish you can just plug "Anakee III" into the Google box at top of page and read on...

2007 Wee. Blue. Bought at 5K miles. Sold at 32K+ miles. Gone but not forgotten.

2012 Wee2 Adventure. Black. Bought at 26K miles. Now 46K+. Love it!

I put a new one on front and rear for my Alaska trip and it made it the whole way at 10,366 miles and a lot of that is rough roads that are hard on tires. Actually they are still on 12,000 miles later but getting toward the end.

My front tire gives a little vibration at 90+mph but nothing that bad and it is not balanced either.

Just finished off a set of Anakee 3's. I got about 9k out of them. The front was toast at about 8k or a little more. Probably could have gotten another 500 miles out of the rear. First time I've had a rear out last the front.
