kingpinofdisks Posted November 18, 2007 Share Posted November 18, 2007 I need a tire with a LOT more mileage - my mileage is going to go from 1800+ miles / month to about 2800+ miles per month. I was looking at the Dunlop Elite 3 - rumored to get well over 10K miles with a heavy cruiser. I see they have the 120/70 size for the front, but only a 180/60, while my bike seems to like a 180/55 size rear. What would the problems be, if any, from changing over to the slightly larger rear? I am not worried about loss of ultimate grip, as my miles will become 95% freeway after I move. I also don't care about high speed, as us poor Americans can't get over 85 on the freeway without serious legal trouble. Most of my freeway miles are dead on at 65mph, using the cruise control for maximum fuel economy. Link to comment
