You will find tires much cheaper on the internet. DO a search and compare prices.

Default Metz wobble

You may get a wobble up front over 90mph but it wears away and still feel much better than the DumpLots that come on them... I think I got the last set from tiresdirect or the motorcycle superstore...

hard to find, but can be. Love the meztlers.

I am running a Dunlop 207 on the rear of my 04 kingpin, and it works fine.

Default Question on the 200

I have an 07 vegas, I have read from some that they think the 200 will crown and is not a good fit. those of you running the 200, have you had any problems with crowning or wobble?

thanks

Vee

200 series tires on 5" and 5.5" wheels will actually present less contact patch and a narrower profile at speed than the 180 due to tire growth. Not to mention that due to the tire growth, they are more prone to ripping out the rear wiring harness. I have also personally witnessed a friend go into a high speed tank slapper above 90mph as a direct result of slapping on a 200 series Avon Venom. We warned him, he didn't listen.... Wobbles set in any time he went above 80mph. He decided to push it through.. Down the highway he went. There are really tons of threads on this subject... why this question is still being raised, well... it honestly amuses me.
