hello every one smallr46 here . I am looking to replace the tires on my se1500 .when I bought the bike it came with Dunlap tires on it . the front tire is waive & makes the bike hard to handle . I really don't know what brand of tire is the best,. Can anyone give me any suggestions . the bike is a 1997 SE Goldwing. Thanks cant wait to hear from you guys.

Abnormal tire wear is of more interest than what brand you have.I do use Dunlop but I also have balancing beads in the tires.
You might be checking the shocks,bearings,etc as you replace the tires.

Thanks I don't know what balancing beads are but i will look into that I was told that the uneven ware was caused from the tire being ran low on air pressure but I wasn't so sure that was right. I seem to have a little oil on the right fork above the seal It looks like that could be leaking a little also . :?
