Thank you for the great advice and information links!
Over the last few days I have done a great deal of research on "darksiding".
Dunlop Elite 3 information from the Dunlop website:
180/60R16 - Recommended Rim: 5.00", Overall Diameter: 24.39, Overall Width: 7.16, Maximum Load: 992 lbs at 41 PSI
180/70R16 - Recommended Rim: 5.00", Overall Diameter: 26.06, Overall Width: 7.13, Maximum Load: 910 lbs at 41 PSI
I was a little shocked that the OEM Dunlop Elite 3 is only rated for 992 pounds. The lowest load rating that I found for any CT that I considered was 1201 pounds (87).
I have a great deal of respect for all the posts about using a run flat tire on my Wing. I have had a tire deflate extremely quickly and come off of the rim of my car. Glad to say that I wasn't driving on the interstate at 70mph. I wish that the Michelin Pilot Sport AS+ ZP (zero pressure) was made in a size that fit our bikes.
Joe: From your photo ... It looks to me like you are using a Michelin Pilot Sport AS+ on your bike. (Can you tell that I have studied tires/tread patterns a lot lately? LOL). That is one of my top choices. Would you be willing to share your experiences with me?
So far my top choices are:
Michelin Pilot Sport AS+: 205/55/ZR16
Kumho Ecsta SPT XPR: 205/55/16
Would anyone have experience with either of these tires?
