    front tire shinko 244 5.10

    what pressure do you guy run your front tire....I replace my stock tire with a shinko 244 5.10 it seems a bit squirrely on gravel compared to the stock tire.

    18 lbs for all purpose, 13 lbs off road, 22 lbs street. You have to experiment.

    This is about exactly how I run my tire pressure's. I feel a huge difference on gravel in favor of 13 over 18. Sometimes, I even carry a small air compressor which I hook up to my power outlet, so I can change tire pressures when I know I'm going to be on long stretches of both gravel and pavement in one day.

    Would you post up some pics of your bike with that tire mounted? I was thinking of getting that or the 4.60 size. I'd like to see how big that tire looks on the TW. I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks..

    When in doubt, Gas It..!!!
