We used the Tourances on our Alaskan trip last summer. They worked fine and we did 9,000 miles on them, both the 13-650 and 14-1000. The 1000's were worn out at the end , 650 had maybe another 1,000-1,500 left in them. We did notice when mounting them the rears are made in a different place than before and they were much harder to mount than the older Tourances. Very hard to get to bead properly.
