The 200 bridgestone is an OEM tire for a V-Max, I'm running the 180 version and it seems to work just fine. I don't know how well they do in the rain though, as I never ride in the rain.

WHile niether makes an alternate size for the front, both make tires for the front. The DUnlop is the stock D208F and the Bridgestone is the Exedra 851.
I won't comment on the DUnlop but I've run about 3 of the Bridgestones and love them.

I have been running Bridgestones and they are stable in wet weather for me

I will be needing tires soon also.
Bridgestone exedra 851 for the front 850 for the back?
Is this the right combination?
