Where the rubber meets the road-

Post by shadow02 » Thu Jul 05, 2018 12:54 pm



Greetings fellow Wingnutz, formerly Shadow 02, now Harley o6 here once again. I read in the July news letter about what is being called "dark siding". The article suggested the Austin Taxi Tire but it failed to mention a suggested size? This tire will be for a 1988 GL 1500, so if anyone happens to know a size please let me know. I'm considering taking the plunge. Also, where would you take the tire to get mounted? Bike shop or car shop?

Thanks as always, rubber side down. :shock:

It's a 175R16: https://www.universaltire.com/175r16-au ... black.html

As for mounting it, here's what I did: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=43239
