I have been looking into radial and bias tires for touring machines,but no one makes one in a 17 inch that will fit the bird.They're either too narrow,too wide,too high or in a 16 or 18 inch rim size.I'm simply tired of spending money needlessly on tires that don't last.I'm used to 25,000 miles out of a rear tire,not 5000 miles.That means you can't even take a trip cross country without having to replace one of both tires during that trip.That is totally unacceptable,not to mention, expensive. CT's will go 80-90,000 miles and for almost half of what we're payin for these so called performance,high mileage tires.And no one's gonna tell me that high mileage,real high mileage MC tires can't be made,cause they can.The T bird is a CRUISER,not a CAFE RACER.I bought it to tour,not take on all comers.lol Dave!!!
