I'm running 110/90-19 front and 170/80-15 rear on my bike and love them.

Welcome to the madness bbullis1. Here is a link to the Vulcan Verses take on tires:https://www.vn750.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1173
BTW, you can install tires one size larger, from a 100/90-19, to a 110/90-19 on the front which will correct the speedometer to a large extent. The rear stock tire is a 150/90-15. There is enough room for a 170/80-15 in there, according to several members who have made that modification. It will cut down a little on your stop light to stop light acceleration, which I haven`t found to be lacking at all on my stock size tires, and I am 5'11" and weigh #300. On a positive note, it will however drop your engine speed by 400 to 500 RPMs at highway speeds. Search around the tire threads and you will find a differing views on this mod, and different brands of tires

I was cleaning my Vulcan the other day and noticed the front tire is starting to crack. Probably from being old, I haven't had the bike very long but i know the previous owner had it sitting for a long time. Does anyone have a favorite tire they would like to recommend? I am looking for something with good stick but also decent priced (less than $100 if possible). I found a few Avons I liked from shade tree powersports for about $80 but I want to check the forums and see if anyone has a favorite they recommend :-D
