Dunlop E3 tire question for '88 1500

Postby amsoilguy » Tue May 07, 2013 8:54 pm



I plan on getting the E3 tires, but when I look on jakewilson.com and enter my bike it shows their recommended touring tires, including the E3 rear and the American Elite front, but not the E3 front. Is that based on manufacturers' recommendations or does it matter?

This is what you want. A 130/70-18, do not know why it is listed for 90 and up only?

The American Elite tires are for Harleys. Stick with the regular E 3 bias!!

That's what I was wondering too ct, I figured there had to be a reason why it isn't in their list for the '88. I would think it should match the rear E3 just fine.

Just saw your response Dusty, that's what I will do, thanks for the confirmation.
