Ok, I did it..Put a conti-pro 195/55/16R on my Wing!! Now to figure out
what air pressure will be best?? I have 30# now, seems ok, when I first
rode it, it felt like it wanted to jump back to straight, even on turns...
Seems a little more stable now with 200 miles on it..By the way, I bought
it used, 7/32nds left..Almost new...Any ideas??

That is normal for the run flats, they tend to want to stand up after you lean them over. Not a bad feeling, just takes a little time to get the feeling of the tire. 30#'s seems to be a middle ground for air pressure, just add 2#'s of air at a time until you find the comfort zone for your style of riding. My bike at 30#'s seemed to want to wander in the rear end just a little, 32#'s seems to be my comfort zone.

Freebird, welcome to the Darkside, 31 psi is probably close.

I ran as high as 34 and as low as 26. Now I leave it at 28 for solo and 31 when two up and pulling the camper.

freebird,
:congrats: ! Welcome to the enlightened "DARKSIDE" :thumbup: !
The ContiProContact SSR 195/55 is the tire I run and I am very happy with it :yes1: ! I have a little over 17K on it and I think about 4 K left. I run mine at 30 psi and it was worn even. I just bought 2 used that have 9/32" tread on them so I will not be needing a CT for awhile :smile: !
Good luck & ride safe!
