rotate them every 500 miles and you should get around 2000 from a set. that's, of course, if you ride 'em until they're square and coming apart. they aren't training tires!

How much do you weigh? What kind of roads do you ride on? 20 or 23 mm? Are you a spinner or a masher? Lots of climbing? Rear tire wear is heavily dependent on rider weight, as it is caused by the power transmission through the tire to the road. My wife, at 125 lbs, gets at least double the tire mileage that I do (180 lbs). Front tires don't wear, they just age.
