Roadsmart 3

A buddy of mine came over to mount a set of roadsmart 3s on his RT but were the wrong size (rear) so I bought em. I am going to use this thread to keep up with the mileage & performance data.
Feel free to chime-in though..

I'm 2000 miles into my first set of the Roadsmart3s... absolutely THE BEST tire I've used on my K13S - grip, wet performance, and longevity looks very promising...

Grip comparable to the Q3+, they reach temperature quickly, and outstanding turning characteristics... you're gonna love 'em

My 2 rupees worth...

Ironically I'm going to try these next. I hate haTE HATE the lack of center tread on rear tires. The Roadsmart 3s are the only tire left that the tread overlaps the center. (I hope Uncle Doug reads this. I threw away a pair of the original POS Roadsmarts after they tried to spit us off the 4th time.)

Re: Roadsmart 3

Just pulled a set of RS3's off my R12RS at a little over 6000 miles- They had a 1000 or more left in them. Steering was the most neutral of any tire I've tried. Only downside in my case was tar snakes, especially damp tar snakes- my roads are infested with them. I'd put another set on but I am now trying the Road 5 Michelin. The feel of the Dunlops was consistent throughout.
