Front tire for a Trike

Post by survior »

Hi again, another question, if anyone has turned a Goldwing into a trike- what is a good recommended front tire to install? Thanks

There are 2 highly recommended for the front of a trike:
1. Bridgestone BT45
2. Michelin MPA
Some advocate reverse rotation mounting, which I have done. Some tire manufacturers, at one time, suggested this and gave the reasoning for doing so.
I got 19,000 miles out of my first BT45 but, I'm pretty hard on it in the twisties!
Now have a MPA mounted to try it out. So far, so good!

Avon have manufactured a trike tyre
If at first you don't succeed, hide the evidence.
