Rated 2 out of 5 by haroldforutne tire wear
I would like to know when a scorcher tire needs to be changed because of wear. There are no wear bars, and there is no tread in the middle of the tire to measure. I have checked with several dealers with no one able to give me more then a guess on wear. When I had the tires changed the last time there was a wide area in the middle of the tire that had no tread. In the past my other sportster came with Dunlop tires which I had no issues with. As you can see, I am not happy with these tires because of this problem. I am not an aggressive rider. I just want a tire with tread in the middle that I can measure wear. I am 79 and this may be my last bike, however I would like to have tires that I am comfortable with. I ride around 10,000 miles a year. Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by YAZOO Tire caused vibration when goig around curves
The rear Scorcher on my 2012 FXDC always had a vibration when going around a curve at any lean angle, right or left. this went on for 15K. The tire wore well and was still usable at 15K. The vib. had to be in the tire itself and quit when I installed a 401 Dunlop

Rated 1 out of 5 by AngelC WORST. TIRE. EVER.
This tire has little grip. Anywhere above 50 MPH and the bike slides sideways.When it rains it has even less grip. It makes me change my intended route just to avoid rain. Michelin's Pilot Road 3 tires are highly recommended by touring bike owners. I was thinking the Road 3 might be a good replacement tire. Maybe I can get the Pilot Road 4 if they make those in 120/70ZR18 for the front.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Drillbit516 Very poor wear
I had cupping at less than 2k miles. Had to replace at 4700 miles. There are no other choices for this bike, 11 superlow, any where. Very poor business decision to put one manufacturer tire only and odd size... It guarantees you return to the dealership to repeatedly buy a substandard tire for entirely too much.
