Default 21" front tires options

Which brand of tires are you guys running after upgrading to a 21" rim? Looking for a high mileage highway tire. 120/70R21 correct?


Thanks

I was thinking about a Dunlop E3 touring tire, same as the OEM tire. Has some great reviews.

I would check the load rating of whatever you buy.
I'd also use it as a guide when setting out on a long trip.
21's are easy to overload at least they were for years and years. That was one of the reasons they weren't real popular with OEM's i think.
As much as some of them wanted to put them on for sales appeal, the liabilities outweighed the benefits.

Newer tires may have solved that problem but I would check just incase it isn't true with every brand.

I am with VJ. I am going with the Avon but the Metz is supposed to wear a little better but not be quite as sticky. I ride pretty hard so sticky is a must for me.
