Anakee 3

So I just settled on anakee 3s as my next tire wondering what kinda mileage anyone has gotten out of them. My Pr4s front dead before rear about 7500 miles out of them, front is almost a bald slick rear had a few k left on it.

The most I got was 17,000 km (rear). The worst I got was 13,000 km (being more aggressive). It is a good long distance tire even if the bike is fully loaded. The anakee3 is a radial tire, I combine this with a K76 (heideneau) on the front which is bias ply.

I've got those, and did 20.000 km with them so far. They're nowhere near their end-of-life, but my riding is exclusively good pavement, mostly highway for commuting. Given their current wear, I'm estimating at least another 10.000 km before they need to be replaced.

They're starting to develop a flat spot in the middle though, which is getting noticeable when cornering. I really need to flick the bike into the corner. Nature of a highway commute I guess. If that flat spot gets really bad, I might replace the tires before they're worn beyond the wear limit indicators.

Ok you guys need to update your profiles so we know what kind of bikes you ride to have that much mileage out of these tires!

It's in my profile.... 2002 DL1000. (It's not in my signature though. Would that help? My profile is only three mouse clicks away.)

Current A3 rear is at 18,500mi and not yet down to the wear bars. I run them around 42psi. The front starts to feel gross a somewhat earlier than the rear.

I've gotten over 20k miles but by then I start to feel it in my bones even though there's tread left.

I've burned up at least 5 sets of them and all hit 10k miles or more.

Wow, major differences in longevity!

That's a lot of money to pay for a tire that gets only 13,000KM, but reasonably priced if you get close to 30,000.

Two wheelz for realz!

I put about 25,000 kms on a set of Anakee 2's. They still had about 25% tread left. I changed to Anakee 3's and have about 15,000kms on those and they are still have lots of life left in them. I ride 70%gravel/dirt (neither the Anakee's or I like mud) and the rest pavement and I am not gentle on tires (average 10,000kms or less on my ST1300 PR4's). I can't seem to hurt the Anakee 3's and I am actually trying a bit because I want to switch over to the Mitas E07's next but am too cheap to throw away half of a tire! Not sure how much more they will go but they are long lasting.

Incidentally, I put about 6500 kms on a set of brand new K60 last fall while in South America. I was on a GS800. They were more than half wore out at the end and it was a 50/50 pavement/gravel ride. And they did not handle pavement well.

For me, it would be no contest. Anakee's over the Heidenau's for handling and longevity.
