I wonder why these are not as popular as the Metzlers. I like the sound of these and the looks. 8000 miles and wearing well sounds okay to me for the price.

Thanx for the replies.
I think that I will go with a set of them. No faster than what I ride and the type of riding that I do, they will work great for me. The price is right too.
I think that I will go with the regular size 100/90-19 up front and the 170/80-15 at the rear. I am going with the k671 cruiser street.

I bought mine from JCWhitney also about the best price around. Did a lot of shopping on the internet before I bought them. I cannot give an opinion at this time because they are not mounted on the bike yet. Bought them because I had to fix a nail hole in the rear time, had ride on in the tire but had to add more to keep it from leaking. They were close to being worn out, so I bought them before I needed them. That was because I did not know if the rear tire would stop leaking. Still waiting to put them on, maybe another two thousand miles.

Kenda makes great products. I run them on my bicycle along with 700 Vulcan.

I don't have the K-671 Kenda CRUISER ST TIRES, but I do have the K-673 Kenda Kruz tires. If the 671's are as good as the 673's, you'll be more than happy. I bought my tires Here Best price I found.

I looked at the K-671's, but they don't list 110/90-19 front, which I wanted.

Last month I paid $110 shipped to my house for the K-673 Kenda Kruz tires.

I don't have alot of miles on them yet but what an awesome improvement over the Dunlops.

Metzler has been around for 100 years or so, Kenda since 1962. That could be part of the reason.

I've decided on and have searched for the best deal on the Kenda's (the 110 front/170 rear combo) and....
Motorcycle Superstore (if the had both) wants nearly 180 bucks... (why so much more than the others??)
Dennis Kirk is $119.98 plus 5 bucks per tire charge.
Trax Motor Sports is 106.00 plus 31.14 shipping
JC Whitney $129.98 plus their brand of Free shipping - $20 handling PLUS an $8 heavy item charge

Trax and Kirk aren't too far apart... so who do you trust?
How old do you think the tires I will get will actually be?

Thanks in advance.

I also used Trax - took few days, but Miami sucks for shipping times. I called them because I had a question about something - very nice people, very helpful. They get my unreserved thumbs up.

I got mine from Trax. Ordered on a Thursday, the guy said the rear tire had to ship from California so would take a bit longer for the rear tire.

Said they would send tracking number to email - got a reciept in email but no tracking number. Called the next day on Friday and the people working couldn't find a tracking number for me and said would call me back. Never called me back so I called again same day and said I would have to wait till Monday to get it because their shipping guy was not there today - UGH.

THEN on Saturday I was looking at my banking account and it appeared I had been charged twice. Called Trax and they said they only charged once. So called bank to confirm and they said it appeared that they charged twice but the second charge hasn't posted to my account yet and was in limbo. Anyway in fact the second charge never came out of my account and dissapeared after about 6 days, but was still odd I thought.

Got my tracking number on Monday - got front tire on Tuesday and Rear on Thursday. Tires seemed fresh and soft and am happy with them - but not so much the service.

Thanx for all the replies.
Well, I now have to replace my tires. Got a nail in the rear one last week. For now I got a plug in it. Kenda it is, more than likely from JCW.

Talk to Jason from

https://www.atvtireking.com/

They were the cheapest I could find at $110 including shipping for both tires.
