OD, Best tire I have ever owned. I ride very hard in the twisties and ride 2 up a lot. This tire is great in the corners, tracks well, and great in the rain. I have 9000 miles on this set and they are only about 1/2 worn, no dishing. The only knock I have on these tires is that they give a firmer ride because of the stiff side wall. I paid $140.00 for 2 oversized tires with free freight.
Thanks JM2001, I may give them a try next go around, but I have already had the shop order the Michelins, my rear Michelin Comm.II has been a real good rear tire for me...
Thanks, and have a good one...Old Dog...
