Thanks - I was hoping to find a radial combo, but had been looking at stock size front.

Tyre Pressure

For those of you guys running 110/80 and 150/70's can you tell me what pressures you are running on.

Cheers.

Do you have to go a 80-18 and 70-17 or can you have a 150 rear 80/17 and 110 front 90/18 as per OEM ??

I am no tire expert, but I am pretty sure that would work. I guess that would largely depend on the brand. I have 70/17 and 80/18 because those were the specs based on the PR3's that I wanted. The only 150 tire they had was 70/17; there wasn't another ratio at 150.

When switching from a 130/80 to a 150/70 my tyre fitter had to use a larger inner tube, yeah. Kept the stock tube on the 100/90 to 110/80 swap.
