I agree. I tried other tires on my 2011 wee, but always came back to the oem trail wings. I just my bought a set of them on Amazon for $220. no tax and free shipping to install on my 14 Vee2. These Bridgestone tires are great for mostly road riding,with some hard packed dirt thrown in.:thumbup:I'm happy with the stock Bridgestone trailwings....I have 11000 miles on mine and are still holding up fairly well
I asked Michelin UK about a trail up front and standard on the rear, and they do not recommend it. I'll guess you'll probably be alright, as others have done this fitment, as long as you don't have an accident, and then have to justify why you've not followed the tyre manufacturers recommendations regarding fitment.I am going to get these when the oem's are done.
I am going for the non trail PR4 for the rear.
I have a feeling you'll find they do fair better. I have PR4s on my Wee and appears possible that this will be the first year that a set of tires will get me through or beyond one full year of use. Better, I'm expecting, than all three generations of Anakees I've had on my Wee in the past. Was always satisfied with Anakees but I think I'm happier with PR4s.My rear OEM Bridgestone Battle Wing was well squared by 4,000 km with proper tire pressure of 42 psi maintaned. Hopefully, the PR4 Trails will fair better.
Do you have the trail front and rear? That they wear better than the Anakee is a real positive in their favour.I have PR4s on my Wee and appears possible that this will be the first year that a set of tires will get me through or beyond one full year of use. Better, I'm expecting, than all three generations of Anakees I've had on my Wee in the past.
Thanks for the info, Michelin UK don't recommend that fitment. Maybe it's a CYA, or they'll get more money as maybe the Trail rear wears quicker, or maybe there is a problem when you don't have two trail badged tyres fittedI have PR4 trail front and PR4 road rear. Works fine for me. Very pleased so far, and that's probably about 5 - 7K miles of riding.
