81 tire options

Postby littlebeaver » Mon Sep 19, 2011 7:35 pm



I took it upon myself to look up all the tires compatable with my 81, please don't throw rocks because I know there's more, I took notes, and copied a photo or two..Someone said there was a limited option. The Bridgestone S11 Spitfire Sport Touring tires look promising.
Then there's Continental Conti Tour Rear Tire
Oh man those look great, I like those... :D

These tires are of the sizes for the 1981 goldwing for the front it's 110/90/19 and the rear is 130/90/17...I hope this helps someone out, I found lots of tires in other brands but they weren't pairs I really wanted some Avon's in a pair.. If you guy's wish to continue to add pairs, please post them.. :lol: Thanks :D Oh yeh, write your reviews too, I won't buy the dunlops because I do a lot of touring, their great for just crusing though..

I won't use a tire that I only get 4 grand out of on the rear the front is fine, but the rear is already worn and I do mostly long hauls, could be the Texas heat hurried the process, I always check my air pressure too, could be a bad batch of rubber, after reading others comments on the internet it sounds like a common thing...I hear good and I hear bad, But I found out for myself...I'm going to try a different tire next time around just to see if there are better results...They are labeled as a crusier tire...I need a touring tire...
