I have looked over almost ALL Fit F.A.F. tire reviews. I am just so confused about it because there are so many mixed results, some say they dont last at all, some say they last long. What is the real verdict? How long do they really last? I am only gonna even think about getting them if they actually do last. I ride a LOT like everyday no matter what. I have a Glh and a path because they have lasted okay. the Glh is okay for tread only having it for about 2 months and the path has lasted for about 4. I seem to burn thru front tires a lot quicker. SO! Do they last, or dont they? if not, which do last longest?

Ive had one on the front for about 8 months and its still goin strong. Ive heard bad things about having one on the back tho. Especially if you ride brakeless it squeaks like no other when you jam your foot in the frame. I also kinda like that my front squeaks when doing fakies, g turns, ect. Id say get it if your running it on the front.

2.25 has more aggressive tread that lasts longer. all of the other sizes wear out faster

My 2.3 wore down in two months, but my 2.25 is still going strong on my friends bike, almost looks new, over a year later. The folding FAFs tend to last slightly shorter.

Mainly to try and filter some of it out. Still mixed results. I love the tread pattern, just had no idea if they last at all. This helped a bit.

Okay, thats good. The only one that lasts is the 2.25. But not for the rear, just the front. Lol

Buy them and find out. Don't use your feet to slow down if you ride brakeless and any tire should last quite a bit. FAF's have silkwall lining or something and kevlar so they're good tires. Pick them out and try.

Just don't get folding ones and they'll last you for a while.

Yea, i like the GLH a lot it seems to hold up a bit better than most others. I like sliders a lot so it's held up amazing so far. Probably my favorite thing about it is the fast rolling it does lol it is just kinda heavy... not to be all weight weenie or nothing, it just is going from 2 folding tires.

I've had mine on for a few months now, it wore down fairly quick but threads aren't showing yet. Heavy street use.

I ride a 2.25 in the front and ride everyday. They usually last me in the area of 6 months probably.
