Honda post the tire size in their shop manual..I couldn't find it...for the 1500.

What are the stock sizes?

What shop manual are you referring to?? I have the Honda GoldWing shop manual...In Chapter 2, page 2 is the tire specs...Is it a Haynes manual??

Now why would they put TIRE information in the section titled WHEELS AND TIRES ? That just sounds silly to me. . . .Of course it was in the FRAME section, what where you thinking ? LOL :lol:

The mystery of where information is hidden inside owner's manuals is just bewildering - I'm sure the technical writers have a great laugh when putting them together. "Let's locate the tire pressure information in the brake section of the manual, they'll never find it there, ha ha ha!"

The owner's manual for my car is 524 pages. It takes me a good ten minutes of searching to find anything I ever go looking for. The index is even worse. I wanted to find the oil capacity for my car the other day. So I look under, of course, O for Oil:



Hmm, well that's not much help. OK, how about Engine?



Ah! Lubrication specifications! There we go. Page 286...well, it tells me what KIND of oil to use, but not how much. Alright, now I've got it! Capacities!



Yes!! Go to page 344...which lists capacities for brake fluid, coolant, transmission fluid and windshield washer fluid. NO oil!!

So after wasting more time, I finally find it. And where do I find it? Under D, for Dipstick. As in, "you'll never find this, you dipstick!"
