Not sure which tire you are thinking of. I had a pair of Heidenau K60 tires on my R100RT. The rear tire wore out pretty quickly at 4K miles but the front is hardly showing any wear at all, now at 10K miles. I'm thinking that the rear wore out since I used the BMW recommended air pressure which may have been too low for these tires. The tread pattern works great for gravel roads which is why I got them. There is a little hum from the tires but not much vibration. All this was before I added the hack though I'm still running the K60 on the front.
