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.
