Tires and oil can be an interesting subject on this forum.
Subject usually ends up in an argument over this or that.
Any round tire should be fine.:ROFL::waving:

I have used the Dunlop D404 on a GL1100 and found them to be really nice. They grip well and ride well. That would be on a 1980 GL1100 Interstate.

Here are Randakk's recommendations. I think I'm going with the Bridgestone Spitfire because it's higher mileage than the Battleax.

I had the Spitfires on a CX500 last year and after 7000 miles they still looked great. Gripped well in the rain and handled like a dream on that smaller bike. In fact I am going to put them on my new-to-me Suzuki GS650 this spring. I am not certain about load ratings on them but I liked them. My experience with the BattlAx BT45 is pretty good as well however it cupped at 11,000 miles but I still ride it with now 19K on it.

I'm due for tires myself.
I've 23K miles on Dunlops with tread left, more on the front than on the rear.
I'm going with a car tire on the rear this go-'round though.
No complaints about those Dunlops on there now though.
