I looked up on a victory webpage (2012 Victory Vegas 8-Ball Motorcycle) the type/size of my 2012 Victory Vegas 8 ball Front/Rear tire. It said Front Dunlop Elite 3 130/70R18 and rear Dunlop Elite 3 180/60R16. I picked up a pair and dropped my bike off at the shop. They called me later and said those tires would not fit.

What are currently on my bike is Front Dunlop Elite 3 90/90 21 Rear Dunlop D417 180 55-B18, which are the tire size for a Victory Vegas 8 Ball 2011. My bike is a 2012 that i bought brand new in 2012.

Has anybody else dealt with this? Or can help explain?

Thanks
Dan

I have 2004.

F 80/90h-21
R 180/55-b18

I have been unable to find a Dunlop D417 anywhere so ended up with a softer Dunlop that will not give me the same mileage as the D417.
I didn't much like the D417 anyway when I had my Kingping. I really liked the D407 though. It said Harley on the side, but last almost twice as long and handled better too.
