Metzler is normally an okay tire. Do you ride two up all the time? So maybe the wrong one for the weight. I have Michelin Commander 2's on my Harley which is equal to if not much heavier than yours. But a Metzeler 888 or Dunlop Elite are two others that should be fine. Avon has some as well. Most any major brand should have something for your bike. Maybe you need to go with a car tire because of weight issues.BobbyandJo said:Hi all.... We are Bobby and Jo we live in the Dallas Texas area. Married almost 3 years. we ride every weekend if weather permits.
We own a 2001 Yamaha road star sliverado. We are wondering what the best type of tire would be to buy for the rear of our bike(going to get a new front one also).
When we bought this bike last may we were told the rear tire was new. but i cant imagine a tire doing this is such a short time!!
we were going to ride today and what we saw before we rode was scary. Rear tire just peeling apart in many places and it was not like this 3 months ago when we had the tire off. We have a Metzeler on there now ,white wall .we really do not care about the white wall we just want a tire that is going to hold up. and more like a touring tire would be best for us. we ride around Dallas all the time. I took pictures of this tire today. We rode a longggg way yesterday and are thankful we made it home!!
any input would be much appreciated.
