' I wonder why they make tyres specifically for motorcycles when you can get car tyres so much cheaper ?! '- that was meant to be sarcastic by the way !
The av92 cobra chrome tire 200/70-15 requires a rim width of 4.75 - 6.25 with a recommended 5.5. I have a 09 Custom which shows a 4.5 stock. It might be difficult to mount and show quicker center wear.well i ended up ordering it from american moto tire for $270 so not that bad.... its the av92 cobra chrome tire. Heard they were good and its the 200!
I just lowered mine 1 1/2 not much room left with a 180. The front feels lighter now.I have a 2015 vulcan 900 custom with 4500 miles. I have a 2 inch lowering kit coming in and wanted a new bigger tire. Problem is only one 200 size tire is available at $400 and zero 230 tires. The center of my rear tire is bald so I need to order one very soon....id rather not spend over double a 180 tire for something slightly bigger but really really want that bigger tire look. I'd think about spending that for a 230. Any alternative suggestions would be appreciated.
I don't want to spend the money on a big tire kit yet as I just got the bike 2 months ago and just spent $1200 yesterday on a memphis bullet fairing, power commander V(came straight piped lots of backfiring), lowering kit, mirrors, iridium spark plugs, and some other small stuff. I will probably send it away for the winter to get turboed but thats for another day/post.
