170/80-15 rear 170/80-15 rear
110/90-19 front 100/90-19 front as they dont offer the 110

what do you all think on the 2?

will be getting 90 degree valve stem for the rear

No experience with any of the tires myself, but IIRC they seem to have a good reputation with other riders here.

No, you can`t use both RideOn and DynaBeads at the same time.
RideOn balances the tires just as well as the Dynabeads, so it would be redundant to use both at the same time anyway.

The RideOn does double duty by sealing any punctures as you ride too.
IMHO, get the RideOn and leave the Dynabeads on the shelf.

I got 14,000 miles on the Pirelli MT66 rear tire. The front is still on and looking good.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

I too have the Pirelli MT66. I got 10K out of the back and 15K from the front. Both probably had another thousand or so left, but I changed them before taking long trips.

Mom, I'm not wearing my helmet only for the purpose of taking this picture and
the background was digitally blurred to make it look like I'm going really fast.
