    front tires

    what is the best all-around front tire. I'm thinking of using whatever the 2018s are using? I first rode my 08 sunday and really like it. you are all very helpful.

    I believe the Trail Wing front tire, which we refer to as "the DeathWing" due to it's dismal performance compared to most any other tire, has remained virtually unchanged since 1987. So if you like the 2018 tire you should like any TrailWing tire just as long as it is not an old aged tire like something from 2008.
    We often recommend Shinko 244 or 241 tires for the front.

    Trail Wing - absolute shite

    Shinko 244 - tougher rubber

    Shinko 241 - softer rubber

    Take your choice ....

    on our last outing I rode my 244 about 20mi with it flat and didn't know it. No harm to the tire at all.
