How often do you normally change tires ? I’ve got 10k on the orginal tires on my 2017 chief Dark horse and they actually seem fine .. any advice is welcome

I changed mine at 15k, there was virtually no wear and give up on them ever wearing out but as they are such awful tyres I changed them anyway. The oem Dunlops are way too hard for UK use, never warm up and offer no grip in damp or wet conditions, changed them for Michelin Commanders. I guess they could easily have went for another 5k before they actually needed changing.

20k. However, lots of factors determine tire wear: weight of rider, one-up vs two-up, the type of materials used for roads in your area, how aggressively you ride and brake, etc.

Concur — I got 20k on my Michelin Commander 2’s and about the same on my last two sets of Dunlop E4’s (which is my preferred tire).
