Should I keep the old tires?
I've no intention of starting a brand/model discussion, this is something slightly different.
I have a set of 90/10 touring tires that have about 6000 km / 3500 mi on them now. By all accounts, the tires should last at least another 9000 km, especially as I am a pretty gentle rider.
That said, I have a course coming up this spring, and then the Touratech rally in June, so I'm going to be swapping the tires out in late April or early May, and they will still have many thousands of kms to go. My girlfriend has a cruiser, so most of our riding is on road.
My thought is to swap the 90/10 out for my offroad tires (I've decided on those too, thanks...), and then swap them back on in June, and store the off-roads until I need them again in August (maybe...) or in 2019. Is that crazy?
