what other tire choices have been made and what successes and failures have folks experienced? this forum is great! i bought a General Acclaim 205/55R16 for the back of the interstate and i will get it installed before the season starts here in Canada. but i know i need a new front as well.

I plan on going with the Shinko 230 Tourmaster 150/80 17 if I can get the rear CT squared a way...

I'm TOTALLY on board with this idea, having made my bike into a "sport cruiser" -(unlike those they just 'call' that, but lack bags or windshields - posers -), but for now,
I'm on my second Shinko 777 which I think will even stick to grease! The Trail Wing looks like a viable candidate for the riding-that-we-do, and I'll check into it. The 777 is
just $85 to my door, sticks like glue for 8k before tapping the wear bars -wearing NOT in the center, but on the sides from the-riding-that-we-do, so it gets pulled just
because of the riding-that-we-do, and I have no fearful conscience of the front not matching the rear's massive grip.
It truly is an amazing tire, up there with Avons, well, except for the faster wear. But who cares, at that price?
I'll follow the reports on that Wing, for sure.

YOUR tire looks like it could survive carving on a cruiser - even modified. However, when I put those keywords in, THIS is the funky looking
dirt tire I got instead:

Well I'm mounting the Trail Wing on my Black Valk
And the Battle wing on my Green Valk ..
And after much thought and studying ..I'm reversing the tread..

To make sure the points go UP as they should be on a front tire...

Now with them being 70's instead of 80' s I'm thinking that will change my speedo but not by much....

Ok took a test ride on the Double dark side..
The new front has a little vibration from the tread..
But so far I can live with that...
HB tried he as well ..And he too said his new tread also has a little noise..
Lots of meat on these tires...
Heck the teats didn't even wear off...Only did a 55 mile run...
