Been through about all the possible replacement tires on the rear of my KP, and every single one has some type of issue that I consider unacceptable. Avons wear to quick, Metzlers were way to picky about air pressure, and wobbles, Bridgestones took way to long to settle into a good ride. Last tire was back to stock, but I am about to switch to the HD branded Dunlop D407. It is used on the 08> SE Roide Glide, and is made for the right weight while it is also a ply tire, and should not haver the picky wobble problems of the aftermarket radials

My drive belt has 42,000 on it and still looks good, but I don't abuse it......much.
On my '02 Classic I have had the same issues with Metzlers, which also seem slick in the rain. I had better luck with the Dunlop Elite III tires. Since I am switching to Kinpin wheels on my Classic in the VERY near future, I am looking for alternatives to Dunlop as well. Thanks Kevin for ruling out Avons. I guess I will be going with Dunlops again. I guess I'll try the D407 and an Elite III on the front.
