I noticed I had smoked my front tire just after coming out of a mountain ride. Belts were showing. I have 6200 on the original Bridgestones. Is that normal for these tires? If you thought these were crap tires and changed yours out early for better tires, hit me up. I'm in the market for a front tire. I am poor at the moment, and I think I can get 2 or 3 thousand more out of the rear.
