I recently replaced the rear on my wife's wing at 9,000 miles. It was well worn but not threadbare by a long shot. I'm using Pirelli Diablos on both ends. Plan on using them again unless something any better or cheaper comes along. I'm planning on Darksiding my Burgman 650 this spring, just for poops and grins. We'll see!

Anyone have problems getting pass the safety inspection with DS tires? Yea, it is ironic DS and safety both words being used in the same sentence. Hawaii requires an annual inspection and I am not sure that it will pass. The local Honda shop that did my last inspection could not answer the question.

As I recall, most states only required a DOT approved tire.

When I researched, I found there were a few motorcycles that can come stock with Darkside tires (custom and OEM)

I even pointed out my Darkside Tire to inspectors Razz
