Husband and I are having a debate and thought we'd take it to the masses
We are rolling on Vredestein Spider 26 x 1.9 tyres. So far we have about 12,000km on them and have never had a single puncture or problem with them. The tyres are now obviously ready to be replaced (cracks showing, a red line around them, which we assume is a wear line) but we have to decide between another set of Vredesteins or the famous Marathon XRs.
I am pleased with the Vredesteins but husband says he expected more out of them and thinks XRs would last longer. I think it is unreasonable to expect much more out of tyres and want to stay with the same brand, since they've worked so well for us.
Thoughts? How much should you get out of your tyres (although I know this can depend on terrain, temperature, etc)?
