Metzeler makes them for the rear for sure> But their catalougue had nothing for the front. The rear is the 170/80 15 at least. I have heard Maxxis makes them too, not sure about their brand quality.

Copied from a post at Yahoo.......

I went with the Venom AM41/42 in Wide White Wall, sizes 110/90-19 front and 170/80-15 rear. Both fit very well and look great.
I haven't tried pushing them too hard yet, but they're already better than the 6 year old original tires they replaced.
The only negative so far is the availability - I had to hunt for nearly two months to get my hands on the front tire. (Although this problem only seems to be for the White Wall - the blackwall tire is available just about everywhere that carries Avons.)
And here is a photo shopped idea I made of what it might look like....

don't like it - looks like someone wearing a white belt and white shoes.

Nor was I responding directly to you, Sir.
I was merely offering an opinion, as do many others here about a great many things. Calm down there, big fella.

I hope you find them, buy them, and ride on them proudly.
