Personally I wouldn't fit them to a wheelbarrow.

Second that! I managed to squeeze 12000 miles on the rear and 9000 on the front - Dunlop Sportmax - admittedly yes I had them on the RS125 so was a light bike but still high mileage, great in the wet, even better in the dry, highly recommend.

I never managed to get 12k out of a piston never mind a tyre.

Busters had a few good deals on pairs last week

Re: Touring tyres

Bridgestone BT023. Very good tyre , good for touring & riding like a lunatic :)
