Motorcycle Tires

Comparing Tires for Your Wing

Tres are an important component of any vehicle, but on a motorcycle they can be the difference between life and death. In fact, there’s so much information out there about tires that our resident tech guru, Stu Oltman, has produced the first of a two-part article on the topic that you’ll find later in the magazine. But what does the layman need to know about tires?

Well, we’ll leave the technical know-how to the experts (like Stu) and instead, let’s help you make an informed decision about what tires work for you and your particular situation. We’ve assembled a list of some of the tires you can purchase for your bike from popular manufacturers. We list out all the specs so that you can figure out what works and doesn’t work for your scenario, and choose accordingly. In addition, if you would like to learn more about tires, check out this informative video by the Moto Industry Council at youtu.be/5raU3otX-bo.

    Trike front tire – what info is available reference the best handling and best wear. Is the use of a rear MC tire replacing a front MC tire to provide greater surface contact a good idea.
