New Front tire advice

Okay looking to replace my Metzler Marathon 880 on the front of my Vulcan 1500, anyone recommend any? I have looked at most found a shinko 777 and the 230 tour master, which are very reasonable or Commander II's and the metzlers and dunlop which I have on the rear. Any favs??

I put a new set of Commanders on to replace the Dunlop's. Been happy with them so far. Everything I've been reading they're suppose to last a little longer.

I just bought a shinko 777 from 4wheelonline. I agree with your price is very competitive as for the performance well, you get what you pay for.
