front tire

Post by Garyd »



? for our trike/sidecar riders. What has been a good tire for the front that sticks and doesn't wear out in a season?

I have been using the Pilot Activ rear tire on the front of my sidecar rig and been happy with it. I am currently trying the Avon Cobra Trike tire on my wife's trike. no real mileage to judge it yet but sure does ride good.my only complaint with the Pilot is it starts cupping and if you don't keep the edges ground down it can be rather noisy and vibrate. but by the time it gets that bad it has racked up some good mileage. I think my last one was around 22K when I needed to pull it.
