yesterday I ordered a Pirelli Angel GT 160-60-18" for the front
. it isn't a car tire but the rear tire for some metric bikes and will mount it in a week or so. The bike has 4K miles on it, tires too!
the old 4k Dunlop will sit on the sideline just in case I'm not thrilled. on a skeptical point most say that this rear tire should be mounted 'backward' on the front rim, so the rotation arrow is pointed backwards when the wheel/tire is on the bike. ??? we'll see.
For the rear, I'm looking at the General 195-60-16 (car tire), have not ordered it at this time and may not get to the rear CT until I need new rubber there or this fatty up front gives me an uncontrollable woody from all the new found 'grippage', that it might get bought and changed sooner.
as some have said 'more rubber on the road', 'more braking', money has nothing to do with my decision, although the General tire is under a hundred dollars.
after reading the posts from 1.5 years ago, some of you are going to say I'm outta my mind, others will think 'sounds reasonable'.. do a forum search from your search engine see what others are saying/experiencing. most MC tires wear out 'in the middle', where they spend most of their time goin down the road on baggers for many. I'll come back with b4 & after pics.
