I run a kuhmo 195/60 radial and a 130/90 Kendra on the front. Balanced with airsoft bbs. Rides and handles as good as anything I've ever ridden

CanAm Spyder shop will install your tire. Car tire has greater weight/load rating, and provides more surface contact. To me it made a huge difference on my VN1500. Handles & rides much better. Video is worth 1000 words.

Hopefully you can find someone to get that installed for you! I just updated my old thread where I've managed about 41k issue free miles on a goodyear tripletread. I'd rather have a MC tire on mine, but I can't complain about the longevity of going darkside either.

Take care!
