What front tire is usually paired with a

SHINKO 777 on a C10? Thanks

I had a Bridgestone battleaxe paired with mine when I had a 777 . Worked well but I will say the only time I've had this bike slip out on me in a corner was with the 777 . I love the Avon Storms I have now . They seem to stick as far as I am willing to lean her over no matter what .

Just put on a new Avon Spirit on the front. Ready for National with new rubber. I tried a new way to unmount my tire. After using 6" c-clamps to break the bead, and ty-wrapping the tire beads together. I ran a 1" web soft tie around the tire. Then I clamped the wheel to a 4 x 4 over head deck post being careful not to catch the brake disc on anything. Hooked a come along to the soft tie and the other end to another post. I pulled the first part of the bead over the top of the rim and then just a small pry at the edges of the contact point of the tire to the rim and off it came. The prying is optional but it just expands the area of the bead that is off the rim faster than just pulling.

Using the tywraps, clamps, and the cable hoist was the fastest and easiest way I have ever removed a tire from the rim. Zero damage and tire irons are optional for removal.

Hey all,

I have a significant air leak in my rear tire. I have a dealer checking it out now, but suspect that they'll come back with the old "You need to replace the tire" line. (The rubber is still good, but if it has a hole in it, my understanding is that you don't repair, you only replace.)

So, I believe it currently has an Avon 195 (? - not sure, bike isn't in front of me) on the rear. I don't ride crazy-hard, don't lay it down nearly sideways in curves, but do like to corner hard sometimes. Try to avoid riding in the rain, but sometimes, you know, you get caught in the rain.

So, pretty much normal riding, and I want to take some long trips this coming spring/summer.

I've read the forum on tires, and people seem pretty passionate about which tires are the best. I'd like to get your opinion on what tires provide the best value and performance.

Thanks guys!

I really like and have stayed with the Avon Storm XM (front and rear), good tires, decent value, good performance.
