Check out the thread by Curtis41 on running a 200/55/17 Bridgestone. It is a V rated tire, not Z rated so it will last longer but still give the response needed for a cruiser. I am on my third tire at 26,000 miles and I just hit the wear bar. I took my Metzler to 9000 but should have changed it at 6500. My second tire was a Dunlop Roadsmart and had exactly 10,000 miles on it when it was changed. Again it was a slick in the center. My third tire is also a Roadsmart and I just hit the wear bar at 5800 miles. I will probably go another 1000 miles on it and change to the Bridgestone 200/55/17.
