Thread: What tires are you using?

  1. #1

    What tires are you using?

    Just bought a K 1600 B. I was wondering what tires everyone is using and the average mileage that you are getting? Personally, I would like a tire that offers the best mileage (99 percent interstate) and I am willing to sacrifice cornering. Thanks in advance for your input.

    The 5GT rear tire has had reports of it rubbing the frame. Michelin removed that rear from its recommended list. Most have not had the problem. Dunlop has new Roadsmart IV that is getting some good reviews. Look over on the website K1600 forum for lots of info on both tires and others.
