I've been using Brisbane Motorcycle Tyres, Slacks Creek 3290 0588 and Two Wheel Tyres, Brassall 3201 5991. Don't know if these guys can help but worth trying.

There's been a lot of discussion here (US guys mostly) about the mileage you'll get from a 210.


Quote "Something else to consider however is tire wear. With a wider tire on the same size rim you will have a narrower contact patch, hence it will wear out sooner. The members who have gone to the 210 average significantly lower miles/tire. "


Many forum members have claimed that their 210s wore out substantially quicker than the 200. Some have claimed that there wasn't much difference.

Didn't one of the manufacturers bring out an expensive dual compound tyre that fixed thelow mileageproblem?


The is a guy call Michael Brace at Goodna that is the cheapest tyre place in town but usually has some good rubber in stock.


can't find his number right now but I think it has been in threads in here before.

I ran a Metz 210 for a couple of months. I got right at one half of the mileage of the stock Bridgestone 200. It looked good but didn't wear worth a ****. I have gone back to the 200.

Same here with the Metz 210 not even half of the mileage of the stock Bridgestone 200.


210 not worth the price tag!

I ran Michelin 200's the last couple of times, and now running a dual compound 210 Metzler, and its wearing a lot better for me, but possibly because I live in the hills with a lot of twisties, the outer side of the Michelins got ripped to shreds, and I only got about 3500/4000k's with them before the canvas started coming through.
