I know there are some darksiders out there who can give me some good information on the car tire issue?



My dealer does not recommend them , I heard insurance company will not cover you with them on the bike?



I have head you get a lot more mile out of the car tires.

I not sure how they will handle at high speeds and cornering.



I am getting about 30000 kl out of a set of motor cycle tires.



Thanks Roger

I has been one great summer here in south central Ontario for ridding , Starting to run out of new roads to ride LOL , Last week end we needed ATV\'s on some of the roads LOL , All roads lead some were but not always on a Goldwing.

There's probably a few threads on this in the Tech Forum. If you don't find it, just ask. They are very helpful.

Hello Roger and Welcome to the forum . If you use the search function here you will find many threads on car tires . You could search by "car tire" or darkside or darksider . All of these should take you to the discussions . I can only say I sure like my Wintersport ROF tire . IT works just fine for me on the 1500 , though I am not a kneedragger.



I hope you enjoy the forums and visit often . Best of luck in reading thru pages of posting to help you make a decision . I do think there are a few folks from the Great White North who use them .

Best to go to the BELIEVER'S Forum for good advice:

Darksiders Forum - Goldwing Section


My dealer does not recommend them , I heard insurance company will not cover you with them on the bike?

Could you get that in writing? Haven't heard of a single insurer that won't cover them. Naysayers favorite argument.

I have head you get a lot more mile out of the car tires.

On average, at least double. And they do it in total silence and no cupping.

I not sure how they will handle at high speeds and cornering.

My Austone is rock solid well over 100 mph and sticks like glue in the corners. PLUS, it sits higher, making it harder to scrape the pegs and drops the RPM about 300 revs @ 70 mph.



I am getting about 30000 kl out of a set of motor cycle tires.

30,000?! Must be those new Helium-filled types.



Thanks Roger

Welcome, WelcomeTo Steve Saunders GoldwingForum.If you have any questions no matter how trivial they may seem this forum is the place to ask them. What I have noticed is that some of the people here were 'sin their previous lives and can answer any question you have. Theforums that I get the most from are::

Goldwing Technical Forum

General Motorcycle Discussion Forum


These have the best info aboutGoldwing’s and are where you ask questions and can get help..

For Sale/Wanted ForumGood stuff for Sale or if you have old parts sitting around the garage you would like to get rid of....





And when all you need is a good laugh to start your day try the:: Fun Forum After that it’s up to you which of the others you will like the best all I can do is suggest.

Again Welcome to the Forum...

Oh and did I mention everyone here loves pictures.. Show us some of yours... Even if it’s not a Goldwing just a pretty view

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Always look for the door "C" it may be hidden but there is always one there...
