I'm kinda surprised you left out the Michelin Anakee 2's...There is a thread with links to dozens of other tire threads here that has lots of info. Plan on spending some time reading, and remember that opinions are like, well, you know the rest...
Long story short, for on-road mostly (ie road and gravel) people seem to like the stock Trailwings (cheap), Bridgestone Battlewings (also cheap), Metzler Tourances, Avon Distanzias, and Continental Trail Attacks(all more expensive but potentially longer lasting/better performing). Cheap tires are $230 a set mail order. Expensive tires are $280+ a set. For offroaders, the Shinko 705s are good, dirt cheap, but wear out quickly. Conti TKC80s are swell but pricey and also wear out fast.
Then I am all for deleting any and all new tire or oil threads..........going forward. Lets delete the worthless stickies too, and the worthless search functions....just sayin.:yesnod:its easier to ask again rather than read thru old threads many times about tires that are obsolete
I understand the new Road 3s have sipes like a car tire :yikes:Randy
Stop with your practical inputs
This is the internet obsolete information overload is paramount
I am keeping an eye out for 19 inch Pilot Road 3
So far I'm quite pleased with the Tourances I mounted up. The only negative I can say is they are a tad noisy/rough when leaned over at slow speeds due to the wider tread spacing towards the edges of the tire. Riding in the center or at higher speeds in corners I never notice it at all.I like the Metzler Tourance.
