Put on my new tires! Mefo explorer front and Vee rubber vrm-163 rear. The front is a 50/50 tire and the rear has a similar chevron pattern. The rear tire is very round, far more so than the stock brisgestones. This makes it want to fall into turns a bit more. The front on the other hand is more resistant to turning in, the knobs make it feel a bit slower. It’s a slightly odd feeling, but in just a few miles it was second nature. I think I’m going to like this combo. But we’ll see how long the tires last. I got 4500 miles out of the stock bridgestones. Front cupped badly and caused headshake and the rear just wore out fast. If I can get at least 5000 out of the rear I’ll be happy. Charles.
