Rear tire

Post by twick23 »



I need a new back tire for a 83 1100I Goldwing 42,000 miles. I've had Dunlop, 2 Shinkos.
Any thoughts
Thanks

I went with michelin commander 2s. I like them. Had Dunlops and these seem to be better right from the get go. Only 1K on them and very happy.

Shinko 230 Tourmasters on mine. I've got about 5000 on them now, and the rear is starting to square off, but I mainly do highway miles on this bike.

The front is starting to show some strange wear patterns, but nothing too concerning. Just some veeeerry mild cupping.

The price is really hard to beat, even if they only last another 1-2k miles.

Shinko 230s as well. As he said, the price is hard to beat, and other than wearing out quicker than some allegedly "better quality" tires, their performance in my experience has been nothing short of great. Just got a new rear tire put on today, actually. Old one was starting to look like a racing slick after roughly 5000 miles...I ride pretty aggressively

I got over 17,000 miles from a Michelin Commander 2 & there's still some tread left. I have a new one waiting to be installed. About $150 delivered from Rocky Mountain ATV
