I have a 2010 vegas 8 ball.
I am going to need to replace the rear tire very soon.
The only place i can find the Dunslop 180 55-b18 tire that came on it is from the dealership for $280, which is insane!!!!!!
Can I switch both the front and rear to a set of Metzeler 880 marathon tires?? I keep hearing that because the bike came with bias tires on it that switching to radial tires may make it ride and handle completely different.
any advice or clarification would be appreciated.
bike is also lowered 1 1/2 inches and i weigh 225lbs.
i just don't want to run into any issues with high speed wobble or it not going down the road straight.
i love the way it rides and handles now. I just find it bizarre that the only place you can get that tire is from the dealer. Dunlop doesn't even list that tire on their website.
If your bike came with bias stay with them. here are some place to buy tires on the net and any after market shop would mount them a Vic dealer more then likely will not.
