    Bontrager Hard Case Tires

    How many miles would you expect to get out of these tires? They are on a Trek FX 7.3. I found a piece of metal stuck in the rear.

    Road hazards are not the responsibility of the tire manufacturer..


    best to watch where you are going, and avoid riding thru a debris field.

    I understand debris flats. How many miles would you expect without debris?

    I have 4819 miles on my 2012 7.3 fx and while the tires are worn there is no cord showing or tread separation. Of course the rear is worn a little more than the front. I'm expecting to get over 5000 miles, but how much more I don't know.

    I have a set of 700c H2's with 1600 miles on them. Font shows almost no wear. Rear shows little wear. Zero flats to date and I have pulled many tiny glass slivers and and even more pieces of radials out that not have not punctured the tube. I expect to get at least another 2000 miles out of them.

    I got 5,000 miles on both sets of tires I have had on my trek 7.3. I had one flat with the first set of hard case tires and one flat (knock on wood) with the second. I love these tires.
