Will this BELTED DUNLOP 491 ELITE MT TIRE 90/B17
fit on a 1980 GL1100 Goldwing? Its for the front. Mine takes a 100x90x19, and I just don't know about this one. I cannot find any info on it.



Thanks,

No, a 17" tire will not fit on a 19" wheel.

:waving:The correct size front tirefor the '80-'81 GL1100 is 110/90-19 and the rear is 130/90-17This info is from the Honda GoldWing 1980-83 Service Manual.

Just got me a new front tire UPS today for my 1981 gl 1100, a Dunlop D404F 110/90 19 . I can't find a 491 Elite II to fit mine front or back anymore!
If anyone knows where to get some please let me know, there must be some left hiding in a warehouse somewhere. picasso

Randaak has some good things to say about this tire size in the IRC DuroTour RS310 series and they are cheap.

I've decided to go with the a Dunlop D404F 110/90/19. Good price, as well as quality. I have a new one already on the rear, and thanks to Nightwizard40 for getting it on for me. I appreciate you Nightwizard.
Thanks al,
Nightrider1

Nightrider1,
You may want to look at the wieght rating of the Dunlop 404, it is 694 pounds at 41psi.
You might be overloading that tire a lot if you run two up and any stuff in sadle bags etc.
