My "Googling" haven't exactly yielded many results with people having such obnoxious issues with destroying tires as I do. In short, I destroy such a high number of tires that its becoming one of the most expensive "consumable" in this hobby. And these tires are of the "Most durable and expensive" ones, so I'm not cheaping out on these.
For example, sometimes a tire will last for only 3 rides like my current "minions dhr" that I just bought and destroyed (rear tire), but front tires also goes quickly. I'd say average life expectancy for a tire would be 10 rides (if I'm lucky). The tires end up having minimal wear to the threads, obviously, so I often have to bin what looks like new tires. The kind of punctures i get are those that the sealants wont fix, typically larger ruptures/slashes. I'd like to clarify, these are tubeless tires running no inner tube.
This might be a silly question altogether, but I just thought I should ask, and if someone are having similar problems...
Is it "normal" to go through a tire this quickly, or am I being unlucky/doing something seriously wrong?
I follow a lot of mtb-vloggers, and I just had to "laugh" when "BKXC"(Good YouTube channel! ^^), said he wouldn't buy Schwalbe tires as they wore out in just 3 or 4 months. Well, I'd consider myself being lucky having a set of tires past a month...
I understand that there are a multitude of parameters that can affect the longevity of said tires, but here are some to hopefully clarify things:
Rider and riding style: I'm on the heavier side, being at 215lbs(95kg), equipped. I Usually pick the cleaner lines, avoiding sharp rocks, etc. I dont't exatcly ride super hard either.
Bike type: This is a 2018 Remedy 9.8 (basically an enduro type of bike, with 160mm fork). I don't feel like I can push this bike to its limit.
The area in which I ride (Norway, near the capital -- woods with little elevation), usually has a lot of roots, occasional rock gardens, although singletrack is scarce. Also typically wet, "swampy".
