holy cow! that's 23k km.
I changed mine at 17k km because of the obvious squaring, but I'm sure I can get another 2k km out of it.

My rear stock only made 8200 miles.....performance was decent for a stock tire. Replaced with a road pilot 4 and it seems to be doing well.

Changed my rear stock D222 tyre at 19,000km. The center wear indicator was almost (but not completely) flat with the tyre; a few spots of white underlying "string" became visible in the middle.
End up replacing it with Dunlop Road Smart 3. The thread is deeper than stock D222 and tyre appears to be slightly wider. Early indication is it's a better tyre than stock D222.

Its hard to compare tyres as you dont really remember how a tyre felt when it was new.
New tyres have not experienced heat cycles and time, good to know more about alternatives.

I recently had the Dunlop Q3 fitted and oh my god what a tyre.
My bike feels completely different, call it a placebo, but it's consistent with online reviews.
The only downside is that they don't last long apparently.

Do you have any info on how long they last on our bikes?
Often there are reviews posted by riders of bigger bikes, and the extra weight and acceleration wears the tires out faster.
Since the CBR500 is not a powerhouse, supersport tires may last a long time.
The Pirelli Diablo Rosso on mine look just squared off after 16,000 km!

I was told 10,000km riding conservatively.

What kind of bike is the person who told you riding?

Even if it's a way more powerful bike, 10,000 km is not much at all, especially when ridden conservatively.

My 750 burned through its stock Bridgestone BT-016 in 7300km. I had roughly the same mileage on my CBR500 with its stock tire but there was still a good bit of life left in it. I don't know how you guys are getting 15-20k KM on those D222's. Good work either way!
