Tires For My 1984 Goldwing A

Post by jayhawker »



It is time for a new set of tires but I've searched high and low looking for a matched set of tires that will fit but have come up with nothing. I have Metzeler on it now and very dissatisfied. I could sure use some advice on what tires are appropriate for my old wing.

You might take a look at Avon Cobra AV71 MT90B16 # 90000001364 / serv index 74H / for front ...
... and Avon Cobra AV72 150/90B15 # 90000021762 / serv index 80H / (25.4" OD) for rear ...
... if staying with GL1200's 15" OEM rear wheel.

Check closely the drive side wheel bearing fitment inside the rear wheel hub when it's apart.

If you have a loose fit and decide to fit a 1500's 16" rear wheel / brake / FD with spokes painted black with it's double row bearing and better support in the wheel ... ( viewtopic.php?f=12&p=215366#p215366 )
... then there is a Avon Cobra AV72 150/80B16 # 90000001432 / serv index 77V / (25.2" OD) that will work well with the 1500's wheel in the 1200 bike.

I have seen both combinations on Ebay.

What a coincident I just happened to be ordering the Avon tires when I got your email so stopped before pressing the order button to find out what was recommended. Thanks
