    Only have a few hundred miles so far on the 205/65, but it might be a good point to note that it started with 10/32" of tread.

    I have around 1000 miles on mine (all three). The first weekend I put them on I rode about 4 hours in pouring rain, on various types of road surfaces and at variable speeds. Never broke traction nor did i feel like I made a bad decision. As far as wear, with only a thousand miles hard to tell but still looks as if I just put it on. I have not checked the depth and probably won't I'll ride them to they tell me the need to be replaced.

    I have a 2016 RTS special series. I put Quatrac 5 on all three wheels. I have around 12,000 miles on those tires now. I have 17,000 miles on the Spyder. No issue on dry or wet pavement. The front tires are still in very good condition. There is no cupping and they wear evenly. The back tire is 205-65-15 has 3/32 thread left in the middle groove and about 5/32 on the outside grooves. I started with 20 psi than I went down to 19 psi and now 18 psi. I try 16 psi and 17 psi and it felt loose. So 18 psi seems to be the sweet spot riding 2 up. My next tire will be Altimax.

    Yes I agree 18 may be best .... another member here has the same set-up as you He and His pass. total almost 400 lbs. ... He has 18psi in the rear and has very even tire wear ...... Mike
