Yes I do have the 253. Where you doing burnouts?? Anyway if not I would think if you only got 900 miles put of it you wouldn't want another one. Probably would be cheaper in the long run to just by a whole new set that maybe you will get better mileage out of it. All Im saying is do some research instead of sinking money into a tire that is not performing that well for your application.
I ride with TJD and can tell you that the wear is not from burnouts or over inflation. My unprofessional opinion is that the "performance" of the tire is quite good, except for the rear wear. The front still looks good, and should be so for a couple thousand miles more.
I never heard of the D253s till I saw them on the '08 SM 610, and aside from the rear tire wearing so quickly (perhaps a flaw in the tire?) I'd say they are fairly close in stickyness to the Contiforce SMs I run on my bike.
For those of you that had/have these on your new Huskys, how did they hold up for you?
