Options for Tires on my '80 STD are limited. I get good service out of Dunlop D404's.

I run Michelin Commander 2 140/90/16 on rear and run a Kenda Cruz 120/90/18 on front. Works for me. Could only find Michelin front tire in 110/90/18 but would think that would also work. Michelins are very good for mileage IMO.

I got over 16000 miles out of my last set of Commander 2s. I replaced the rear with another one but put a Bridgestone BT-45 REAR tire on the front. It;s well over 10000 miles now and looks to be about halfway worn. Great grip and just fine in hard rain.
