I don't have lots of money to throw at my goldwing. But I will spend the money on a good set of tires. I just don't have a clue what to buy... PLease direct me in the right direction. Oh, I am asking because today I found out what it is like to have a rear blowout! I heard something hit the bottom of my bike that was in the road and then it came - wobble, wobble, wobble and back and forth over the road. Damn, it was a bad feeling but I slowed down and safely got her off the road. Enough of my complaining already, just get me some tires so I can go riding again!



Thanks

I don't believethere are any bias ply steel belted tires. Because radial tires are wider for a similar size tireit's difficult to get radials to fit due to the close clearance between the side of the tire and the swing arm. There are several brands of bias ply tiresfor an 1100, Dunlop, Metzler, Brookstone, Kenda for a few. Google the various brands and you'll find some good deals.

Speaking of tires the Dunlop elite 3s are terrible & I was talking tires with a friend who has a 1800 & I have a 1500 & I don`t believe Dunlop makes a radial for the 1500 he said they are a special elite 3 for the 1500 that are radial!The only radial for the 1500 is from shinko ! Can any1 tell me if there is truth to dunlop myth ?
