That doesn't look like a good rain tire the way I understand tire tread design.

The value of our lives comes not in what we do or whom we know, but by who we are.

2007 wing with 15500 miles and I am on my 3rd set of Dunlop 250's. I am a slow learner. My next set WILL NOT BE DUNLOP 250's.

The second mouse usually gets the cheese.

I was just looking for new tires and I noticed the wobble too but thought it was the old tires. Right now I havr E II tires front and back. What size tires does an 83 1100 Interstate take? I think the back is a MT90HR16 or something like that, what is best for this bike?
