I read that whole advrider thread (sore eyes now!).  Balance of opinion is very positive for anyone who does any offroading, but pretty good on 'tarmac'.  Plenty said they would buy again.  Seem to get very good mileage from them.
If I did any offroading, I'd try them.
Currently have Anakee 3's, which I won't get again.  Too noisy.

Ken, you may want to consider them even if it is just paved roads you ride. I was burning thru tires every 3K miles until I tried the Trailmax. Now, I'm changing tires every 6.5k miles...they definitely last longer.

I have put a few more miles on my Dunlop Trailmax Mission Tires than I originally planned but here is my wear of the tire today.

I have ridden 2785 miles (4,482 km) and the tread depth readings are:

Start reading: Front 6mm or 8/32 inch. Front present reading 5mm or 7/32 inch.

Start reading: Rear 9mm or 12/32 inch. Rear present reading 8mm pr 10/32 inch.

This is mostly highway miles with only a few hundred being clay road riding.

I think the tires are wearing very well and I should get pretty good mileage out of them. No riding in the rain as yet.

That is excellent wear flaldrider, are these tyres good to go right down to the last mm of tread or are they expecting you to change them before that?

This is my 3rd set of the Trailmax. The first 2 sets lasted about 6500-ish miles. I got to the wear bars on both occasions and changed them at that point (maybe a little into the wear bars). The front held up well but did begin to cup but not until the end of their life. These tires do it all very well! You can probably squeeze a little more out of them but they aren't nearly as smooth at that point. I just rode with my Trailmax in the rain, city streets and highway...no issues. I have 2000 miles on my current set.

Here is a another update on the tire wear on my Dunlop Mission tires.

Readings at 4211 miles (6776 km) are Front 7/32 (5.5mm) and Rear it 10/32 (7.9mm).

They seem to be wearing very nicely and stick very well.

It'll be interesting how many miles you get before you have to change them flaldrider. As mentioned earlier I get 6500 miles and that's all I can get but it's better than any other tire I've had on the bike!

Did you guys see where Dunlop is coming out the "Mutant"? I'm curious to see how that tire performs.

Thanks for the updates Flalrider.  :152:I have decided to fit these to my 2017 Xca. Will fit tomorrow. I do mostly tarmac but do venture off road occasionally. I have had the Metzeler Tourance Next up untill now and they are not bad. I am curious to see how I enjoy the Dunlops. I have a 2500kn trip planned this weekend with some dirt on the trip, so this should be a good measure of how they perform.

I was only going on what I read here (https://advrider.com/f/threads/dunlop-trailmax-mission-adv-tires.1411149/page-9),scroll down to past the very nice looking pictures and size chart for comments from Chissy K - they've made several updates - admittedly that 12 month ago now, I haven't delved any deeper into that thread.

Shame though as they look perfect for what I wanted but won't be risking it now.
