These guys are local to me, but sell the Heidenau tire line up, add them they are good...

for the Canadians in the bunch you can get the Mitas tires at Great folks. Great tires.

the Mitas E09 Dakar front and rear are my current fav's. Although I still haven't tried the Dunlop.

i like the shinko 700/705 combo that chitown recommends here:

thx for the tip!:freaky

SportFaller 08-17-2011 03:00 PM

what are the advantages/disadvantages of the 130's and 140's, Chitown seems to like the narrow tires....

Fill me in:lurk

TKC-80 (130/17 size) :deal

What happened with that tire? was it mounted on the standard F8 rim? did you ride it to the end without incident?
asking because I have also a left over of those from my dakar and would be glad to use it???

Has anyone used ?

They have the cheapest price for the Heidenau K60 scout 150 / 70 - 17 that I've been able to find ($176 shipped), but I haven't heard of the site before...

Great post!

HighTechCoonass 02-18-2012 12:02 PM

its that time again to change the tires for the up and coming spring ride!!

ZachZ 02-18-2012 12:27 PM

Have you seen the Vee Rubber VRM163? Looks like a great Street/Dirt mix for a great price.

johnparjr 02-18-2012 01:00 PM

Shinkos are way cheaper at motorcycle superstore $136 for the pair shipped
