I'm on my second season with My VTX. And I was told last season about the rear tire problem. Yes it has happened. It has worn flat and square. What are the best tires. Names, compounds Etc y'all have seen? Thanks. And No I don't want to darkside. Thank you.

flat and square is the Riders Fault..

Thanks. I ordered a Dunlap because of the reviews it has on a VTX. I got 11,000 out of the one in there. That is an Avon. Don't understand the flat and square being the fault comment? I'm 50 yrs old and have been riding for 40 of them. First time I've ever had a tire do this to me. And it's a major thing on VTX 1800. But ok. Thanks again.
