I recently tried to replace my rear tire and I can't find the right size for my '83 wing. I read that Avon has discontinued the Venom X line due to sidewall problems, which is what my fairly new tire developed over the winter.

Anyone know anything to verify this?

Lots of problems with them over here Mark. Fine cracks in the sidewalls like what you can get with old and dried out tyres. I know it affects Goldwing and some VTX models, possible other models we aren't aware of yet.

Found out recently that the venom x range is being intergrated into the avon cobra range, so far I've heard the front tire venom x has moved, but by now it may be worth checking the cobra range for the rear also.

be sure to check the tire is bias, as the cobra range, also carries radial

I put Avon Venom-X tires on the front of the '83 I have, and it didn't take long at all for cracks to show in the sidewall, particularly near the bead. I would certainly look elsewhere for tires from now on.
