Peter ... if i was in the market for arear tire on the stock rim i would try the new Cobra AV72 -200/55R17 because of their new tread design. I suggest youchkthis outAVON


Here's a post byBladerunrthat you should read in its entirety before making a decision.

[*]Avon Cobra AV72 : http://rswarrior.com/forums/p/48829/671741.aspx#671741

[*]With the slightly larger aspect ratio the tire has abigger dia @ 25.9" (stock=24.9") so the bikewill sit higher. The recommended rim width is 6.25" which is a bitwider than the Warrior 6.00". The tire is designed for a 6.00 - 6.50 rim. The height of this tire is the same as the Dunlop 240/40R18 so you should pick upapprox 4% mph difference over the stock size.

Thanx for the info.

One more Q: should I get only rear or both tires. If I keep my original bridgestone on the front and new Avon on the back

do that will make traction problems? Both have over 6k miles on them.
