I have been running these tires for 10 years on this bike. The bike rarely gets a day off averaging 90 miles a day. Rain or shine these tires are driven till they are bald. I average 8-10,000 miles on the rear and 12-15,000 miles on the front. More than I have gotten from a Dunlap or Kenda tire at half the price. I do my own tire changes and have a tip for you. The first time I changed my rear tire, I only got 6,000 out of it. The key to longer mileage is proper alignment of the rear tire and proper air pressure. I strive for 34 psi and check them every few days or so. Mileage will vary on this tire and all motorcycle tires depending on your driving style and the weather. Temperature where I'm at will vary from the 50's in the winter to the mid 90's in the summer. My tires last longer in the winter months due to the lower temperature and more rain. For the price, I beleive you will be happy with the 712's.
I have enjoyed this tire mostly because of the price point. In order for it to corner correctly it needs a bit more air pressure than what you would normally run.
Even though it's a good price, after 3,000 miles it is done. 90% of my riding is on mountain roads but 3,000 miles seems a little light for a cruiser tire. The tire is mounted on a Vulcan 900.
Bottom line is - it is a good tire if you don't mind a short tread life.
