I just replaced the front with the ME880 110/90-19 and we'll see how well that wears. I'll try the 100/90 when this wears out but I needed a tire right away and the 110/90 was what was available at the time. So far I notice that the front end will wobble more at low speed than it did before, otherwise the steering has been neutral.
I just got my rig on Thursday.
Front tire needs to be replaced.
Thinking I would go with the ME880 120/70ZR19.
Let me know how the one you have wears.
It will be a month before I have the tire done.
