final word from Avon

The guy from the UK plant finally got back from vacation and looked into thier "plan" for Tbird tires. Looks like they're doing nothing in the way of creating a matched set for us, just recommending the tires we already know will fit....storm ultra 2 rear, cobra front. I'm digging the storm rear, but not sure if i'll be going with the cobra because i don't want that [email protected] snakeskin pattern on the sidewall. I prefer matching tires at least cosmetically if not in all ways. But i need a better look and i have yet to see a full on pic of the tire on a bike. Anyways, here is his response...

Our recommended fitment is 120/70ZR19 Cobra front and 200/50ZR17 Storm 2 Ultra rear. 36psi front and 42psi rear.
Thats it ! No explanations or anything, just that. Oh well...
