Need to replace tires on my 07 wing. Looking to replace the rear with a Kumho 195/55/16 for the rear and the Bridgestone BT45 (rear) tire for the front. Any feedback appreciated. Esp. if the BT45 (rear tire) will be okay to run on the front.

Tires

you will find we all have our favorites. I started with the OEM Bridgestones, went 2 cycles with Dulop E-3's and everyone around was swearing how great the Avon Cobras are. I am 10,000 miles into them, they wobble too, at slow speed. I purchased a second pair for my next big trip as I anticipate using up the tires if I already start with 10K. My next two sets will be Bridgestones based upon the feedback on DirectLine parts.
Just my opinion....
Ride safe...

Frt tire

B-45 is good for slab driving if you do a lot of twisties you will eat it up pretty quick. It depends on how you ride. The best person to ask is trailsman. JMO

There are a lot of people that run both of the tires you speak of. You should have no problems out of them.:thumbup:
:agree: Trialsman would be a great guy to ask!:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

Lots of slab running and quiet sight-seeing trips. Probably a good combination. The duel compound tire's like the BT45 doesn't work for me but sure work's for others :thumbup: Ill stick with my 709's
