Back in April I took off my trusty 700x32 Marathon Plus tyres and replaced with with 700x25 Durano Plus. I'd been really impressed with the M+ but they were heavy and I was looking for ways to get some extra speed out of the Tricross.
The Duranos feel like they roll much faster than the Marathons, I've gone around 1800-2000 miles on them without punctures, so on those metrics they tick all the boxes. The trouble is on the back wheel I'm seeing a few small patches of blue through the rubber, which suggests I'm very close to wearing the tyre out completely.
Is barely 2000 miles to be expected for a Durano Plus? When I took the Marathon Plus off it had about 5000 miles on it and looked like it would be good for 5000 more. It's a bit disappointing to find I've worn this thing out in barely five months.
ETA: Not sure if it makes much difference, but if it does my weight has been pretty steady around 240lb for the time I've had these tyres.
