I know there are some darksiders out there who can give me some good information on the car tire issue?



My dealer does not recommend them , I heard insurance company will not cover you with them on the bike?



I have head you get a lot more mile out of the car tires.

I not sure how they will handle at high speeds and cornering.



I am getting about 30000 kl out of a set of motor cycle tires.



Thanks Roger

There's probably a few threads on this in the Tech Forum. If you don't find it, just ask. They are very helpful.

:waving:Hello Roger and Welcome to the forum . If you use the search function here you will find many threads on car tires . You could search by "car tire" or darkside or darksider . All of these should take you to the discussions . I can only say I sure like my Wintersport ROF tire . IT works just fine for me on the 1500 , though I am not a kneedragger.



I hope you enjoy the forums and visit often . Best of luck in reading thru pages of posting to help you make a decision . I do think there are a few folks from the Great White North who use them .

Best to go to the BELIEVER'S Forum for good advice:

Darksiders Forum - Goldwing Section


My dealer does not recommend them , I heard insurance company will not cover you with them on the bike?

Could you get that in writing? Haven't heard of a single insurer that won't cover them. Naysayers favorite argument.

I have head you get a lot more mile out of the car tires.

On average, at least double. And they do it in total silence and no cupping.

I not sure how they will handle at high speeds and cornering.

My Austone is rock solid well over 100 mph and sticks like glue in the corners. PLUS, it sits higher, making it harder to scrape the pegs and drops the RPM about 300 revs @ 70 mph.



I am getting about 30000 kl out of a set of motor cycle tires.

30,000?! Must be those new Helium-filled types.



Thanks Roger

:18red::15red::12red::11red:


And when all you need is a good laugh to start your day try the:: Fun Forum After that it’s up to you which of the others you will like the best all I can do is suggest.

Again Welcome to the Forum...

Oh and did I mention everyone here loves pictures.. Show us some of yours... Even if it’s not a Goldwing just a pretty view
