Tires

Why is it impossible to find matching tires for our bikes other than the stock tires

Because it's a "Harley"

I hate autocorrect. I always end up posting some thong I didn't Nintendo.

And they want your $500 for a new set.......($280 for rear installed, $200 for front installed, and disposal fees) quoted from my local Dealership.

oh and I needed a new rear tire @ 10,000 miles. so be prepared for that at your 10k service.

At least yours lasted that long. I'm going in for my 1,000 mile maintenance on Saturday and got a screw in my tire yesterday

I'll check with them then. It was a short screw so it was a very slow leak

I don't think they make a tire for a 15 inch rear

There are plenty of manufacturers that make the tire....myself, I think I'm going to go with a 140/80/R15....same width but the sidewalls are a little thicker giving it a beefier look.....


Here's a tire calculator you can use to see and compare the difference in the sizes...

JPcycles.com has tons of tires and sizes.....
