I put the Pirelli Snow Control (non-studded) on Wanda. Size 195/55R16. I’m good with it after a 150 smile test.
I think I’ll stay on this side with the Wing , assuming I don’t crash and burn as I was warned at the local Honda shop.

Looks great, that's what Ill be doing when my stock tire wears out.
I find the stock tire acts like a CT anyway being as wide as it is.
Is that a RF?:smile2:

Yes, it’s a run flat. I can’t tell much difference. It’s my first CT ever on any bike.

In Grand Junction, CO, my local Honda dealer will mount and put in Ride_On. They have me sign a waiver which is no problem.

Shop mount

No. Local Honda said they would not do it. “Too dangerous”. So I took it to my guy who normally mounts my MTs for me.
I take the wheel and tire to him and do all the bike work myself. That shop charged me $15 to take the old tar off and put the CT on the rim.
