    VTX1800F Tires

    Hi,

    In doing some research, it looks as if the rear tire on this bike is "Special." Apparently not many other bikes other than Harley's VROD use this size(180/55R-18). So when you go looking you have to search for the V-ROD

    I have found two options:
    Dunlop 207ZR
    Metzeler ME880

    Of the two brands, which tire do you think is better?

    Thanks

    Go to www.sporttour.com for your tires. Avon makes the exact size you need too.

    I did go to Spourttour.com and they mentioned the AVONs as well.


    The big question at this point is what is the best brand: Metzeler, Dunlop, or Avon?

    I have researched this quite a lot lately. Due to the weight of the Beast, most people will say Metzler over Avon. (avon is made by Cooper tire and are great, especially loved by the sport bike crowd)

    I just got the Dunlop Elite 3's and love em!

    I would not recommend O.E.M. Dunlops.

    Gettin My Elite 3s

    Glad to hear that as I was hesitant about getting Dunlops for my steed. I am only replacing the front at this time due to a puncture, but now I may consider one for the rear when needed.
