Anyone had ran this combo? Considering it for commuting, 100℅ pave.
705's last long time in my use. Rear 705 6K miles, Front 12K or better
Price/sizing availability. Need something cheap don't wanna put good tires for commuting before the trip.712s are similar. I've used both.
As to why you would put a 705 on front with a 712 rear? Don't know what advantage that would be. You might get a bit better off-road behavior out of the front but that 712 rear would be spinning!
I have a set of Mitas E07 just don't wanna put them on and chew them up before the trip. Set of 705/712 is $137 delivered, and 712 front doesn't come in right size.If going 100% paved why not 100% street tires. I have Bridgestone T30's on my 2013 DL650 and really like them. Also not bank breakers at about $225 per set delivered.
I am looking at 3-5k stopgap and yes I change and balance my own tires.
