Cut out the original dunlops in 8000km and got strada's now and was told they would get more KM's but at 7000km they look worse than my oem tires did, did complain to my local bike shop and the pirelli rep agreed to discout my replacement rear on a strada again or for extra $20.00 a angel that was after the shop guy mention to rep that i might go to a different brand next.
My view is im dissapointed in original and the strada but if you read different threads on tires you will see tire wear has lots of different varibles. including style of rider, type of roads, weight of rider etc. Our roads in NZ are hard on tires and some area more than others and this may be true in every country.
Just be aware to many different opinions and your head may hurt especially in tire dept as a lot of personal preferance's come into it such as wear, cost how the tires feel during ride, how sticky you need them, wet conditions, off road conditions or road works etc bla bla bla. all the best
