Cool2 Tires for the LC8 overview

I am trying to list all the Tires, who fit on the LC8 here.

Changes of specifications may vary, or the manufacturer will not make a Product anymore. So please do not rip me appart, if you can't get some tyres anymore, or the size has changed. Please feel free, to add on.

Inner Tubes ?

What is a good source/website for inner tubes?

And which size tube fits a given width tire, etc?

http://www.americanmototire.com/catalog/. They're very helpful in terms of figuring out tube sizes, too.

Not sure about the cryptic responses from the one guy Dlrides...
Anyway it's nice to get get a forum portfolio of tire photos from the Grumpy Old Fart and others...
Opinions are sometimes useful.
Better if backed with a description of the reason the tires perform well, or bad.
I like the Scorps for street commuting use.
Rims: Stock rear, and 1.85" bulletproof front.
These tires are sticky, corner well into the edge of the tread without slippage on pavement while affording mediocre confidence on trails/ dirt.
The rear tire is well worn on center at 6500 miles but the front still has much more life.
I'm due for a change on rear at a minimum.
Thinking about the TK's??

Tires (again...)

Hi, Forgive me if this has been beaten to death, I don't get on here often enough...Anyway, does anyone have any experience with the Shinko-705 tires? I know they're cheap and probably not ideal, but are they at least worth the money? I have a 2004 950 Adventure (yes, the fast black one). Please give me some feedback. Thanks!

I just wanted to let you guy know that I tried the Karoo 2 this past weekend on my 990.

my riding partner rode a 990r with a new Karoo
I ran a 990 with a Karoo 2.. both tires were wasted after 660 offroad hard desert miles..

I am sticking with the 908RR if they ever come off backorder..
