need to go Darkside

Post  kkalistx on Mon Oct 08, 2012 9:23 am

I am a everyday rider and the cost of tires is a bad subject with me. I'm ready for a new back tire. I asked this board before and I received the size I will need : 205/65/16, I ride a 2005 vtx1800c. I am now hunting the tire maker....I see the hydroedge is no longer available, any suggestions? Also wondering if I need a "V" rated tire? I would think so, but thought I'd ask. I was wondering if the dyno beads are something everyone is doing as well?

Allright, I did it. Using the dyna beads and I choose the Falcon tire mainly due to emptiness of my wallet. I drove it from the shop and really didnt like it, the road grooves pulled me every which way. When I got home I checked the air pressure, 41. I lowered it to 36 and oh what a difference. I'm loving it. Next tire will be the triple tread, in 30k miles or so, love saying that. Thanks to everyone for all the info/advise. Not sure if the picture will come out or not, if it does, it was at 41 psi.
