New darksider, new member, new believer

Post  dougcasey on Mon Apr 18, 2011 8:14 am

This weekend I installed a 205/60/16 Goodyear TripleTred on my 2002 vtx1800c. It fit perfectly, no mods. I can feel a difference riding it, but it is not very much different and I feel it is very much worth the change. I do my own mounting. I think a key is to shine up the rim bead like new. Mine seated at 50 psi with no popping noise. I fits good, rides good, I recommend if you think this change is right for you, go ahead and do it. It was not much harder to mount than an MC tire, if any. Thanks you all for the advice I got here, I studied this web page for hours before deciding for myself to make this change.
Doug
