2009 Heritage Softail Classic (FLSTC)

Post  Troublemaker on Tue Jul 26, 2011 3:36 pm

I would like to come over to the "Darkside", but I need to confirm what size and manufacturer of tire that I need to purchase. Also, where in Cincinnati can I purchase it. I will be running to the mountains in about 2 weeks and I would like to put it on as soon as possible. I am absolutely tired of putting on new rear tires every year.

You won't find a tire locally. Try Universal tires.com in Hersey, Pa and look for the Austone Taxi tire in 175-75R-16 ($143) or the Excelsior Stahl Sport Radial 550R16 ($212), made by Coker. If you want to lower your bike an inch, the Excelsior Stahl Sport Radial 500R16 will fit. If you have a tire pressure indicator and you want to lower your bike 1 inch, the Dunlop Wintersport 175-60R-16 run-on-flat will fit. There are lots of tires available in Europe in the 175mm width, but as far as I know, these are the only ones available in the US. The reports on the Austone so far are very good, but actually there are very few reports. I don't recall anyone that's reported on using the Coker ESSR 550R16, but the one report posted recently on the 500R-16 (on a Sportster with a sidecar) indicated that it wore out totally after only 4000 miles. I also have an "09 FLSTC and plan on using the Austone when my Dunlop wears a little more, unless updated reports from forum members give us an update very soon that brings forth some heretofore unheard of problem.

You probably would have to find it online somewhere. Most likely a local shop wont carry it. Maybe they could do special orders though. It might cost you extra possibly
