  3. Tire pressure, Honda manual vs manufacturers!?

At first I thought it was due to the rear wheel bearings. In fact they were already a bit "slack". However, I have replaced them by...

  20. Basic tyre poll - Mileage

    Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    I thought i'd create a very basic poll on how many miles you've managed to squeeze out of a tyre (front or back, whichever went further). I'm interested to see if it's just me who can't get more than about 14000 miles without needing a replacement. I know there are a huge number of variables...
