The most popular tire I would say is the Michelin Commander II. I've have about 6,000 miles on the set on my 800 Classic and they handle very well wet or dry and show very little signs of wear. Many tires are rated "tubeless" but can be used with tubes which is a must with spokes. Jakewilson.com is a good place too start a search and read reviews. They have a good selection to meet you budget.
+1 on the MCII's. Have them on my Voyager and love them. Stock Bridgestone's were shot at 5000 miles when I bought the bike. Have a little more than 6000 miles on the MCII's and they are handling beautifully and show very little wear.
My 1700 Nomad came with Metzler tires on it. During a day trip with my wife I noticed that the bike was a little loose in a curve so at the next stop I inspected the back tire to discover it was flat! To get home I had to stop a couple of times and air it up but we made it without a problem. That makes me a devout follower of the Metzler ME880 and will continue to put them on my bikes.
Plus 1 with Michelin Commander II. Pricey yes, but very worth it or Dunlop elite 3, you'll surely won't go wrong with this 2 brands. I believe 4 Wheel Online are selling them for a big discount check them out and you might get lucky getting them cheap.
Hello everyone. I have an 08 Vulcan classic LT. It has the original spoke rims but I would like to change them. I was wondering if anybody had done this with like a Vulcan C or any other typep of rims that are not tube. Thanks in advance.
Hey guys, I’m new to this forum and just as new to the Vulcan community. I just purchased a 2007 Vulcan 1600 with 5,900 miles in it. The tires are original which I didn’t like so I’m going to replace before spring. My question would be, what do you guys recommend for tires? Any suggestions would...
Is there a significant difference between tube and tubeless ties for touring? I want to do long road trips, but my 900 Classic has tube tires, which concerns me. From what I’ve read here, for the cost of doing cast wheels on it, I could trade to a Nomad. Weighing the decision. Thanks in advance...
Good day Fellow Forum Fellows.
I am looking into the possibility of taking my Vulcan 500 onto non-paved roads more often than I currently do. With street tires you can guess that I am a bit concerned about grip in gravel/dirt, especially when the road has not been properly maintained. Don't...
