Now there's some good advise, pj007 especially buying in person and if you order them online ask the seller for the Production date before they ship it - no one needs to buy an out of date dried out tire for a 120+ Hp bike that can run 130+ Mph, tires are no place to save $. I had a front tire on a Gold Wing get punctured (tube type) and blow out on me at only 45 Mph two up, we almost had a head on with an oncoming car on a two lane - if it wasn't for my off road racing instincts of planting a foot and throwing the bike over to the right I"d still be dead ( along with the ex wife ) ( she never rode again . Check your tires, air pressures, and replace before they need it. Your life depends on it.

There won’t be any old Cobra Chrome tires for awhile. I just ordered the front. Loved the Cobras in the past.

Just got my first ride in on a set of Cobra Chromes. Had the previous model before that. So far, so good, but I only put about 10 miles on them. They do seem to ride a bit better than the prior model, but mine were pretty old, so it could just be the age of the rubber.

Hi can anyone recommend white wall tyres for a Vrod with 120/70 19 front and 180/55 18 rear. Any help would be appreciated.
