Just installed the third set on my third bike. They made my cruisers handle like sport bikes. Wet/ dry traction is excellent. Braking can be done with total confidence; my ABS has yet to activate with these tires mounted. Looks like I’m going to get close to 25k miles out of my original set on a 900lb bagger!! I’ll be hard pressed to ever run a different tire.

Best tires ever!!

I purchased this Tire on 11/2023 and as soon as I rode away from the dealer/installer I noticed a much better ride than the oem tires. I listened to a friend and glad I did (he also told me expect to get many good miles out ofthem.
