Hello all, I wish to tap into your vast knowledge! Here's the scoop. I live in Alaska, the roads are full of frost heaves, and partially covered in dirt. I burned through my original tires in 2500 miles, squaring the rear off badly. I really don't need a set of sport tires for the conditions I ride here. The road never really heats up, and conditions are not ideal for max lean angle. I know there are some new sport touring tires out there that supposedly have a harder center compound for longevity. Could you all toss me some opinions and advice on what you think would be an ideal tire? Thanks in advance!
I've had the pilot road 2s and they are great. They wear evenly, last a lot longer than sportier tires (pilot powers), and they can hold a full lean. The main difference between the PR3 and the PR2 is the 3s are better in the rain and that's pretty much it. So of your not riding in the rain that often and want to save some money over the 3s go with the 2s.

My old ride is swinging past Pluto, other rides, some looking out, some looking in, some repairing of others and sadly the R/D on two broken and three retired. . .
