Tires for 1200A

Postby david4752 » Tue Dec 16, 2014 8:46 pm



I have been shopping for tires to replace mine again over this winter. I have used E3s also Avon Venoms. The Avons lasted the best without cupping on the left side. I guess my question is can I put 150/90B-15 (80H) Avon Venom AM42 Rear , and 130/90-16 (73H) Avon Roadrunner AM20 Front. Avon doesn't seem to make a match to the Venom for the front. The back tire is rated at 992 pounds, and the front is rated at 805 pounds. Also rated at more speed than I will ever see. Seems like I would to know if I can mix tires types both are also bias types.

those ratings are over the recommended ratings by Honda and should be fine, I dont know if the missmatch would be a problem, but the reason you cant find a front avon venom x is because it has been integrated into the cobra range.

I currently run a avon venom x rear and cobra front, and they work well together. take care if ordering a cobra though, the range also contains radial ans well as bais tires.

Tires are like oil war's, who has the best and we all have our own opinion, I have used this brand on my last 4 bikes and well over 150K mi. combined (ST1100-GL1100A-GL1500K-and current GL1200A) SHINKO, they have great milage, smooth ride, great grip and whare as good as any brand I'v used in the last 40 years (Mitchlin-Perelli-Avon-Bridgstone and Dunlop) all good tires. and as I say to each his own. Good luck and ride safe.

I should have listed the Shinko tires as 230 Tour Master for the 3 Goldwing's wich are H rated, the ST1100 was there sport tire, but I don't have the model anymore. :mrgreen:
