I really like the wide whitewalls on my bike. I have the Dunlop American Elite's on there now. They've been good but after two years / 12K miles they ride like stones and I dont trust them. New tires for 2017 for sure. Does anyone have any experience with the Shinko 777's and the Dunlop D402's. The Metzeler ME 888 comes in a wide white front but I cannot find a rear tire.

Tires are 130/90 front and a 170/70 rear.

Have a look for a 180/65/16 rear tire.

Same height to sidewall ratio.

The Michelin Commander 2 got this rear tire size for thise bikes.

The stock rear size is not available from Metzeler.

I have the Shinkos on my 2012 Voyager. The front has over 14,000 miles on it and wearing good, maybe another 5,000 miles or so left before the wear bars. The rear I only have about 4-5,000 miles on it, would have to look up mileage when I mounted it. As for ride and handling, I have no issues and most likely will buy them again when needed. I only wish the white wall was a bit wider.
