    The 2009 R3T I just got has the original Metzeler Marathons, only 1600 miles and in apparently good shape.

    However, due to their age, I’m looking at other options. I’m finding limited availability in the prescribed 77 load rating.

    I’m 200lbs and tend to tour with both side bags and a rear bag loaded.

    How concerned should I be about load ratings of 72?

    IDK, most things like that are "cover your ass" stuff, but premature wear might be an issue.

    I just replaced my rear, used another Exedra Max. The one I just replaced got 10K miles, about 3K more than the OEM Metzler.

    What are you running for tire pressure in your rear Exedra Max?
