Tires - Z Rated Rear/V Rated Front?
So, the Road Attacks on my V have about 8,000 miles on them, and the rear is definitely squared off.
I actually have two questions: :mrgreen:
1. The front isn't horribly worn, in fact, probably has 1/2 the tread left, so, should I replace it too, or wait till it's done? The tire is 2 years old.
2. I found a 150/70-17 "Mileage" Road Attack that is supposed to grip like a sport tire, but wear longer, which I'd like. But, it's "Z" rated. The existing front, and all the replacement fronts I've seen are "V" rated. I wouldn't imagine it would be a problem to have a Z on the rear and a V on the front, do you?
BTW - I REALLY like the Road Attacks, especially since 99.99% of my riding is on pavement. Just super tires.
