I'd check the O.D. spec on that tire if you're concerned about ground clearance up front. The stock size is a very tall tire, the Metz in your sig pic is 26.73" if it's a 150/80R17 ME880.
That 160's a great lookin tire. What brand and model is it?

Hey Dan, the tire brand is Shinko,i think the model # is 006 or 712, i found it on e-bay. I think it is $85.00 plus $15 shipping. I burn through two front tires every season. Getting a bit expensive those Me880's. Yes the tire on the front of my bike is 150/80r/17. This new tire would be a bit shorter??, and a bit wider??
I need the wear of a rear up front and the price is right. Hey, if I don't like the tire i can always get a different one. Not much of an investment $85..
It is at a place called pinwheelcycles.com i think, but it is listed in their store on e-bay..
The tread pattern looks pretty good to put up front.
If I get it the big decision is to mount regular or reverse????

Bobby, thanks for putting up the picture!!!!

Getting closer to pulling the trigger on this tire at the top of the thread!! 160/60/17, for the front of my 1800r.
Any objections?? Just double checking! The size should work...
I know I will probably crash and burn in hell, but that is alright, as long as it is after the Knoxville trip which I should be able to make....
