I've been running an Austone taxi tire, 175Rx78x16 on two RoadStars for several years and have yet to find anything wrong with them. They corner until I drag floorboards, stop real fast, last about 25,000 miles, wear evenly (when run at 32#), and put my speedometer exactly on correct reading (based on my gps). Here's a link to the main place most folks get theirs from:

By the way, I weigh 320#, often carry a 210# passenger, and have Tsukayu bags. Here's a link to my setup:

RonK, Thank you for that information on the Austone taxi Tire 175R/78-16. That is what I am about to use on my 2013 Roadstar Trike. The reason is because my Roadstar is eating up my Michelin Commanders II . Maybe these Austones will help my Milage Usage. My trike is a Voyager Convertible and I still have a rear tire as my power tire.

Austin Taxi Tire for 2013 Yamaha Roadstar

Post  Kai Sayson on Sat Nov 04, 2017 4:21 pm

My Austone Taxi Tire 175R-16 is mounted on my 2013 Yamaha Roadstar Trike. It fit okay with 1/4 inch clearance at the nearest places but still clears. We'll see what my milage is with these tires.
