I'm thinking of trying a 70 series GL1800 rear tire. At the risk of starting another tire thread, which 70 series tires are most popular? There are four that I've looked at:


  • Dunlop – Elite 3 - 180/70R-16 180/70R16 H (130 mph) 77 (908 lbs)
  • Bridgestone – G702 series Rear 180/70HR16 77H (910 lbs)
  • Metzeler – 180/70HR16 H (130 mph) 77 (908 lbs)
  • Avon Cobra - 180/70HR16 H (130 mph) 77 (908 lbs)
I am leaning towards Elite 3 or the Stone. Generally I like 60 series Stones, but 70 series MC tires are a bit of a different animal for all brands. (Like sidewall strength.)

PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND IF YOU HAVE NO EXPERIENCE WITH A 70 SERIES TIRE. I'M ONLY INTERESTED IN 70 SERIES EXPERIENCE.
