Question

Looking for tires for a '95 EX500 I just picked up. Since the orig tires a little small (F:110/70-17 R:130/70-17), no d207s or pilot sports will fit. Any good suggestions I should look at? Thanks...

the views and opinions expressed by tony (cbrf2boy) are the ramblings of a total idiot. sbw.com, it's administrators, moderators, and members don't necessarily agree with and are not responsible for anything this idiot has to say.

for more ramblings try cbrf2boy

When I had my '89 EX500 I put Bridgestone BT-45's on it. They came in either H or V rating and gripped well. There wasn't a large choice as to tires due to the fact that I had 16" wheels, but even with 17" wheels the BT-45 is a good tire. Cost is reasonable as well and they do seem to last.

I would say go me33 or k591...

I used to run these on and off on my old 600R and they performed very well.

After all, you are not riding an r6 or a rc51, so these metz's or dunlops will be more than adequate.
