i have a question... what is the widest and tallest tire i can get away with front and rear. not worried about the speed being off.
Jumping in on this - what is the stock front wheel size?(Front.....110/90/19) Rear 180/70/15 is the widest......170/80/15 is the tallest ......but I don't know if all brands of 180/70/15's will fit.....I know the Pirelli Route and the Shinko Tourmaster will. I have Shinko Tourmasters on right now.....They WILL handle everything you throw at them. To me.....The Shinko's are the BEST budget tire made. Pirelli Night Dragons are also a fantastic tire.
nope! it's not just you, they DO handle grooved pavement better. much better!Going from the 100 to the 110 wasn't a huge difference. It may just be me, but it does seem to handle grooved pavement a little better.
And a +1 on the Shinkos. Working on my second set of them now.
Took me a looooooong time and many efforts to get my car tire to bead up. Polished the rim, used all kinds of bead lubricants and colorful words, and it still wouldn't go. Finally said the heck with it and put air in it untill it seated. Think I maxed out the air compressor, which was set at about 100 psi. YMMVBaldy.....about the 175/65/15 car tire on the rear. did you have this on your bike? Was it a nightmare to get to bead up?
