    Default Front tires

    Well after 9,000 miles this year, I'm looking for tires and it seems that the OEM ones are discontinued.

    Has anyone had any recent luck in acquiring tires that fit? if I find a front that fits, then there isn't a rear that fits in the same set.

    I have had the 120/70-17 bridgestone fitted to the front and a 150/90-17 bridgestone to the rear so far I have done nearly 2k miles with no steering shake issues. the balance feels better also.

    150/90-17 do you mean maybe: 190/50-17 ?

    Bridgestone as for me. Dunlop changed shape after time and Avon just sucks on wet.

    I got the road pilot 4 fitted with a 120 on the front, delighted with them.
