    A new rear tire for the front of our TW's...

    Kenda Tire | Powersports | Equilibrium

    It is a little bigger than the 4.00r18 shinko 241 and a little more aggressive. Any thoughts on this one? Found out about it last night... Just tossing it around.

    Don't be silly. We don't all run the same amount of air in our tires let alone the same quality of air! I import my air from Sweden since it saves about 10% in weight over American air.
