2007 Roadliner 1900 cc

Post  Ravenoak on Sat Mar 16, 2013 6:31 am

Looking to go on the darkside with a CT, I have some friends who ride with me that have CT on there bike and they love it. I am wondering what size and manufacture of tire is a good tire to start with.

I am running a 190/60R 17
I also ride 2 up a alot

It would help if you told us the size of the stock tire.

CT tire help

Post  Ravenoak on Fri Mar 29, 2013 6:48 am

I was recommend to this site for some info on running a CT on my bike. But so far I have been disappointed,59 people looked at the post, one asked what tire i am running now.

I guess I will try an new avenue for info..

Here are some tires to consider:
  • Good year Triple Tread 215-60-17
    General Altimax HP 215/60-17
    Michelin Hydroedge 215/60-17
    General Exclaim 205/55ZR17


I have the Michelin but don't ride two up much. I have and one time when I hit a big bump, the tire rubbed. So, this tire would not be a good choice for you. AND I think it's a bit wide. Next time I'm going with a 205. There's no such thing as a 205/60-17 (which would be perfect), but there are a lot of 205/55-17. These are a bit shorter, but probably about the same diameter as the stock mc tire. Lot's of choices.

When I change tires in 20k miles or so, I'll be looking at what's available and go with a 205 with a nice tread pattern. I have done the 65t pulley mod, so a shorter tire would be okay.

The linerwiki has some other car tire choices that folks have tried. But the above 4 are ones that I know have been tried successfully.

Here is another tire worth consideration. Michelin. Symetrical. Nice tread pattern. All three things I look for in a tire.

Ebay is another place to shop. Sometimes you can find some old single tires for cheap. I've had luck there. Pay attention to the tire age if buying over there. ALL tires have the month and year of mfg stamped on them somewhere. The tire companies tell us not to ride on rubber older than 6 years.

Ok I am having a hard time finding a 205-55ZR 17 seems all i can find is run flat tires. I did come across a General Altimax HP 205-50R17 http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=General&tireModel=Altimax+HP&sidewall=Blackwall&partnum=05HR7AMAXHPXL&tab=Sizes
Would this work out for my roadliner riding 2 up?
I am sorry I am not a tire expert and its getting a little over whelming I really want to go to the dark side.

Try this one at the tire rack
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Michelin&tireModel=Primacy+Alpin+PA3&partnum=055HR7PRPA3XL&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes

I've bought from them and they're pretty good to deal with.

I have the Michelin Hydroedge. I notice it rubs on big bumps when I ride two up. But this weekend I had Lauren on the back and it never rubbed. Might just need to tighten up the suspension to remedy this. I'm 180 and Lauren is 150 if that helps.

I am happy to post I am now riding on the Dark side. I ended up using the Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3 205-55-17. Had to widen the fender a little but went right on. so far I am really liking it I am running 40 lbs to start.

thank you for the help

Glad you found a tire that fits.
The reason I asked what the stock tire size was, is because even if us darksiders don't ride the same kind of bike we might run the same size tire as your bike and then we can recommend a tire that might fit your bike.
