Here's one - I need a 175x17 for my ST. So far I have found nothing. Does anyone know of a specialty purpose tire manufacture then may have this odd size?
Stick, Can you tell me what type of tire this Dunlop is? Example: (Goodyear Assurance Triple Tread.) Im looking for the type/style on the list but there is many models if you will. Just trying to narrow it down to the tire you have so I can research.
And, I will be able to argue with Rocky--the best part! :thumbup:
Now I am un-bummed up. I have a VTX 16" rim and just orders the 175x60 tire. Not a bad deal as the rim was $125 and the tire $73.I'm all bummed up - so far I am stuck, it's mc tire or figure out how to retro a 16" wheel on the Stealth rear.
At the very least the CR has to go as I can't run 30psi in that thing for more than 5 miles as it will overheat and blow apart.
I am heading over to the local salvage yard now to see what will fit this thing otherwise it's a dependable bias and 28psi. I'll just have to change tires every 8K.
You don't have to do anything accept let out the air in the 2 larger sizes and a little soap to slide it in . The 175mm just slips right in. The 205mm which some riders are getting away from you have to tie back the fender skirt with a wire tie to add a little room.Hey Stick, Great pic's.
Question or two. :?::shrug:
I've got an 08' and was wondering if there was anything special I needed to do with any wires or tie's in the wheel well to get the CT put in? I've read something on some of the treads that some needed to be tied up!?
What exactly are these dyna beads and how do you get them into the tire to balance the tire out? Are they free floating inside the tire?
The more I read about CT/RF's the more I think about getting one on my GW. BTW, Great color, same as mine!:thumbup:

I'm kind of a semi believer in the beads. I saw the Utube video on the beads and it looked like they work OK. The tire needs to be dry inside without any tire soap or gunk that will stop the beads from free rolling. For the most part you could run the tire and probably not notice any out of balance especially since it's on the rear. I've run about 5 cts' and hardly ever change the balance from tire to tire. ..

I would believe the Garmin too however your odometer is racking up about 7-8% more in mileage than you are actually putting on it....Honda says I'm doing 80, Garmin says 74. I believe Mother Garmin....So, that's not a factor.
5 ct's = 5 car tires
What in the world are you doin to me....I'm so embarrassed... Cheers...:doorag:5 ct's = 5 car tires
Must be bout right as thats what I'm getting also... Cheers...:doorag:I just installed a show chrome tire guard tire pressure monitor.
Having read a couple of threads about runflat failures caused by running a flat tire too far, I wanted the peace of mind of knowing the pressure at a glance.
Anyway , the unit also tells the tire temp with the touch of a button. This weekend I rode 775 miles in up to 84 degree temps. The highest reading on the temp was 108 riding 75 mph. Seems to be 25 degrees higher than ambient temp most all the time.
This is with 32 psi cold, this grows to 38 hot. Front tire was in the upper 80's temp, 41 psi cold 47-48 hot
I think the deeper tread of a ct acts as cooling fins to shed heat, a mt does not do that. Just my opinion.
