Another Tire Question

Anyone know if Dunlop E3 radials (130/70R18 63H Dunlop Elite 3 Front, 180/60R18 80H Dunlop Elite 3 Rear) would work well on a Kingpin, I heard they're used on Kingpin Enforcer Police bike used by some Sheriff departments.
Need new tires soon and looking for alternatives to stock.

Get the matching 'ZR' pair... the front comes in an H-rated tire as well for bikes with 16" rear rims (Goldwing).

G-851 front 130/70ZR18:



G-850 rear 180/55ZR-18:



$227 for the pair....

Just put those ZR s on my KP. Stable and grip well, wear FAST too. That is about what i paid as well.

The ZR s are like moccasins or Nike's for the KP.

I sort of like the D408/407. They are like putting Red Wing boots on the bike.

Very curious about E3s.

Please keep us posted on what you get and how they work.

I've been getting around 9000 miles out of a rear Bridgestone. Front lasts thru 2 rears.

Good to know. The 407 went 12k, but, twice the $$$. The Bridgestones grip very well.
