I have a 1500 GoldWing with the Champion trike conversion and 4.5 degree rake.
What is working best for a quite front tire?

You should find tons of tyre threads on the forum already. The subject comes up often enough.

I've been using a 130/70H 18 BRIDGESTONE BATTLAX BT-45 Item# 330-0760 purchased from Chaparral Motorsports for $112. This is actually a rear motorcycle tire, so it has much deeper tread. I run this same tire on the front of my 2004 which has been "double darksided". I also used this on my '93 w/ Champion sidecar. I have installed these for a few friends with trikes, and some other Darksiders, and they all like them... quiet, good grip, more mileage, and less $$$. Good Luck!

186 views and only one reply. WOW, I hope this is not representative of how this site is helpful to new members questions.

I went with a Bridgetone Battleax BT-45 rear tire and mounted it on the front of my trike. So far so good. It handles well and no noise as of this early date.

Now: I am almost afraid to ask, but I need two new tires on the rear and am only looking for quite and smooth ride. I could give a ^&$# about how many miles I get, just want them comfortable and quiet.

Any sugestions for the rear of the trike. TIRE: P205-70-R15

Many of those views are simply site visitors/lurkers who are not members I would think- The members of this site do a WONDERFUL job of doing their best to help all people, new or old.

Have you tried a search for rear tire trike? There have been a large number of tire posts for various machines. Keep in mind many posting members have posted the same thing time after time, and assume that a person might search it first. I also belong to a Ford Bronco site and when you create a new thread it automatically searches your subject to see if you really even need to post it. This site does not do that though.

That said, like a car, if you want a quiet tire you are looking at a touring type, just like a car whose owner wants a quiet tire. Some tires even have 'silent-wall technology' they call it (forget the brand off-hand) so you might want to check with a local tire dealer.

Maybe I am off base, and if so I apologize, but honey works better than lemons. (186 views and only one reply. WOW, I hope this is not representative of how this site is helpful to new members questions. Now: I am almost afraid to ask...)

It's possible only a small minority of those 186 viewers may be trike folks...and therefore most didn't feel qualified to give an answer. I'm only speculating here, but I do know that the members are abundantly helpful when they have something useful to contribute. Best of luck with your tire questions.

Lot's of us may read the posts, but don't mean we have a trike or good answer for you.

I just read this, have no idea what rear tires would be good for you though.
