G1500 tires?
Any recommendations?

Sure do! And it don't matter what you're riding.

Michelin Commander II's.

You can't go wrong!

For my '98 Sidecar rig I just got Bridgestone 709 for the front and Austone Taxi tire for the rear. FYI Bridgestone is offering a rebate which expires this week.

Dunlop Radial on front,Avon on rear,best combos I ever had on Wings.

Its pretty hard to beat the Avon tires on the GL1500. I have ran them for 98,000 miles (4-sets). Good performance, handling and wear. The New Dunlop E-4 tires are very good....!

Normally I hate Dunnies. These were very good and what came on the 15s new.

Very long mileage and great handling when rolling on a matched set.

When I bought my GL1500 used it had Dunlop E2s on it. I've used E3s and my last replacement on the front is an E4. My last rear tire lasted 30,000 miles. I see no reason to change. True these tires whine when you lean the bike but so do millenials when they have an outdated iPhone. The whine never bothered me and I'm content to stay with the Dunlop elites.

I had put an Avon AV26 rear tire on the front of mine before the deer hit me. The rear was a dunlop E3. They were doing well. I was planning on a Taxi tire for the rear when the Donlop wore out.

I have Dunlop E4s on my GL1500 And I am pushing around 14k miles on the front and rear and they both look like and tread depth is exceptional. They handle very well on wet pavement too.

I have been using Avon on my ride since the originals wore out. Too many tires to count with 203K miles. Never let me down.
