I would like to see a photo of a tire when you remove it. Mileage is subjective to how long you leave the tire on. My last 3-4k kms is typically pavement or gravel use only and the last 2k kms no riding in the rain. I typically get 16k to 19k kms on a rear before changing it. They get pretty squared off at end of life also and changes handling. New tire goes on and it feels like a sportbike again for spirited cornering.

My current E-07 Dakar front tire has 30k kms on it. Trying a E-10 Dakar in the front next, if mileage on it can match an E-07 rear and significant dirt improvement I'll be changing for good.

well, if the center has no grip, it's gone.  It's useless to me in gravel.  Unless I grove it.

It all varies how and where you ride.

Bummer that I have a new ribbed (old style) tire sitting in the garage to go on next.

It looks like a lot of experience with the Mitas E07 Dakar tires here. Could any one please help explain the tire markings. I think I will try these tires but I see two tires with the same size that will fit my bike. One is the 150/70-17 69T the other is 150/70-17 70T. What does the 69T and 70T mean on this tire?

69 and 70 are the load ratings. All the 150/70-17 are 69 load rating, the 150/70-18 is the 70 rating. The 18" tire has a higher load rating than the 17". You can search for the ratings and what pounds they actually are rated for.

I may be mistaken, but from everything I found earlier, the E07 and Dakar are staying the same.  They are adding the E07 Adventure which lacks the center rib.  Riding more pavement than dirt, I'm very pleased with the E07 Dakars I have on now.  Front is vibey, but I can live with that.  I'm at just over 16k miles and still not to the wear bars.  Getting close, and not tires I'd take on serious off pavement rides now, but fine for pavement riding still.  I'll change them when they are really worn out.

My last ones at 16K had just a little bit more meat on it. Not much, though. But at that point, the rain performance was a bit dicey for me.

The roads around here are white with salt and there are small piles of it at the stop signs & intersections. Rain is what we use to make all that salt stick to bike and car electrical components.
