tire size

Post by sonny benfield »

I read so many replies about car tires on motorcycles and how much better service they are giving. does anyone know the correct size ct for an 86 aspencade? and are there any modifications required?

165/80-R15. No modifications required if you don't mind using about 90 psi of air to seat the beads. If you want to seat the beads with a little less air, you can remove a hump on both sides of the rim to make it mount easier.

If you aren't having fun doing it, find something else to do.
