Just came over to the darkside.

Thanks for the information. I went to walmart last night and bought a douglas extra trac II 205/65/15 for $80.00 came home and mounted it my self. It took me about 3hr to take the old one off ( ended up using a hacksaw on the old tire) and mount the new one. I ride a 2002 Honda VTX 1800S with the Spoke wheels just kept the inner tube had to air it up to about 140 psi to get it to pop onto the bead. I will be going for a test ride tonight to see how it works.

300+ miles and no problems. I took the first 100 really easy while getting used to it. It rides great the only diferences I noticed were when on a concrete hyway that had been planed it felt odd but didn't cause any problems. No problems cornering I think in some instances it may even corner better.

"No problems cornering I think in some instances it may even corner better."

I'm sure it does and you'll experience this, specially when it rains. yes
