Hi there - I've read the discussions on sizes & pressures, but does anyone have any recommendations on tyre brands and model no.s please?

I've used the bike-selector on the Bridgestone website to get the sizes, but would like to know what you love / hate about tyres you've tried before I get my dealer to order & fit them.

Bike is a '77 GL1000 that gets steady road use, solo rider & light load. I will be buying a premium brand like Bridgestone or Dunlop etc.



Thanks in advance.

Bridgestones were supposed to be the best for the GL1000, if there really is such a thing as the best tyre.

I think you can get them there; I use the Bridgestone Spitfire S11 tires. Great tires for this bike! And mine is also a '77.

Hi,

Found a local tyre shop that will fit Bridgestone BT45s to my new eBay rims - he keeps the rears in stock and will order the fronts once I've got my new bearings fitted so he can balance them.

Question: - both tyres & tubes fitted and balanced will cost £135 (or $235 USD), so is that about the right kind of money? I've never bought any bike tyres before!


Thanks.

High end of the scale for US prices, but the dollar is pretty weak right now. I paid less than $200 last time.
