What is the difference between the G853 and G851 front tires? I know the G853 is the suggested one for the GW, but the G851 is cheaper and is the same tire size. It looks like the G851 is aimed at the Yamaha Stratoliner, which is a similar bike to ours.

Is anyone using the G851 instead?

which is also the difference in price: $2 ;)


IMHO don't go cheap on the tires, rather switch to CT if you do a lot of freeways

It’s about a $60 difference. I’m already running CT on the rear, this is for the front which I don’t plan on going to CT on.

Make sure you're comparing apples to apples. Check the tire rating. The recommended tire rating is an "H" 149mph. The higher the rating, the softer the rubber is and the softer the rubber, the faster it wears. This why you see a difference in pricing for the same size tire.
