The stock tire is a Dunlop. What would be a good replacement tire and tube for the front? What should I avoid.
Doug,I am also getting ready to put new rubber on my bike. I have tried Metzlers several years ago. Set #2 on my Vstar. Was not impressed Felt like I was riding on marbles on wet roads. Maybe Metzler has changed the rubber compound since then. I will admit they felt great on dry roads.
Of the ones I have tried I liked the Dunlop D404 the best. Currently have Pirelli MT66, not impressed.
Does anyone know if Metzler has changed the ME880 recently?Making it better for wet roads, I seem to spend a lot of miles on them riding around Puget sound.
Has anyone tried the Michelin Commander tire?
