However, I've been OFF on Avon tires since my own experience and that of others over on the ST-Owners.com forum with that brand. Seems the rear tire for way too many riders had a tendency of belts splitting without warning and with plenty of tread remaining. Mine did that as well as at least a half dozen who reported it on that other forum. This was almost all with the Avon Storm II tires but I think also with another newer model. When the belts on mine split, and blew open the tire, I did have just over 16000 miles on them. But there was enough tread for another 5000-6000 miles yet and no visible anomalies could be seen before it happened.
