I have my front wheel currently off waiting for new wheel bearings, its got an E3 made in 2004, has some minor cupping, I want fresh rubber on the front.
MCDarksiders seems to be gone, what is the current best tire for the front of a GL1500?
Battleaxe BT45 130/70-18 rear tire mounted backwards? It does have a 639lb load rating, most max weights on the 1500 are under 450lbs, and thats with LOTS of gear.
Or what is the current choice of a CT, for the front?
As far as I know there isn't a CT that will fit the Wings front.
Yes, Battlax is the reigning champ for the application.
Do understand, the more mass weight you put on the front wheel the more input you need to exert.
That spinning mass takes a little longer to turn, not a lot but enough to be concerned until your used to it.
I got used to it after the first turn, tho I am a quick learner.
My next Battlax is 140 wide, currently 130. THAT should be interesting.
Unmounted, this tire is HUGE... considering.
I wonder why Trojan never made retread tires?
