I am looking into a new rear tire. The tires have been on the bike since before I bought it and the back one is very thin. It has Dunlop 491 Elite II's on it. What have most put on there bikes. I am not a big fan of Dunlop, I had them on my Vstar 1100 and switched to Metzlers and love them. The 160/80 x 16 is hard to come by, so would the 150/80/16 be ok? I also see that the ones are radial on the bike. Has anyone put Bias ply on them. I know if I switch to bias ply I have to change both.
Please help. Thanks Travis.
Good rubber is important and I hate to tell ya what you may not want to hear but there is no way I would swap my Dunlop E3's radials out for anything. I have over 10k and there going strong. My two cents!
