Gonna have to check on it to see if they offer it in a DL size {150 section 17 inch rim} because that's exactly why I decided to experiment with the CT. Basically, I needed a tire that would last an easy 15K miles, two-up and heavily loaded. Had nothing to do at all with being cheap,,,, though you couldn't get the peanut gallery dumbasses to understand or acknowledge that. They would always have some sorta witty, wonderful {or maybe not so witty nor wonderful but you couldn't tell em that either} argument for that too.
