Just rotate and balance every 4000 miles or so instead of 6-8000, and they wear just fine. all m'ts do that. Its a hassle, but its easier for me i guess since i work at a place that does that.

Not sure how the 10k will work with your edge though. Probably dont need it. Then if you need you can rework you intake so that your battery is behind the intake. ie between the filter and the cab so your not blowing that acidic dust from your battery into you filter and there is nothing between the filter and the airflow.
