Default CCT tires

Any Thoughts on tires, Thinking about Shinko. Just came back from Neah Bay Washington and was told by fellow rider that the Front tire treads look fairly worn,

I have to agree with @CanuckRob ....I've tried a few sets of shoes on my CC but Avon Cobras offer the best performance. Cobras probably don't wear as well as some other tires but for their all condition high performance..its worth having to replace the rear a little sooner than later....

Tire threads are like oil threads, just based on somebody's opinion. The stock tires work just fine but other choices out there work fine as well.

Find a tire you like but, keep in mind that tires have maximum weight carrying capacities and many m/c tire manufacturers do not make a tire that is rated to carry the weight of a CCT and 2 passengers, let alone the bags stuffed. The Shinko max weight is 827lbs, 160 lbs less than a Dunlop elite 3 or 4.

Yes that's why it says in the manual you will die in a fiery crash if you use anything but stock tires.

My Commander II's have a rating of 1,019 lbs or an 81 Load rating. The highest in the industry.

Default Tire Load Rating

You know...we talk about load ratings for tires but can someone tell me just "Exactly" how much weight does each tire have on it. Is it half the weight of the bike plus rider weight ? I have no idea .... And why would they manufacture a tire saying it fits a certain bike and it not be safe for the weight and rider ? Just asking....FMI
