    Tyres for an '82 R100RT?

    Hello all,

    I'm new to this forum, I am really amazed by the high level of activity and the number of members.

    I'm close to wearing out the Dunlop Arrowmax rear tyre after only 4500 miles of moderate driving on mostly good roads. It has performed excellently but I suspect this to be more of a performance tyre - I need need a good touring tyre with better mileage. Suggestions anyone?

    Regards,

    Balder

    I find that the round ones work the best! I don't have a recommendation for you. I just wanted to say welcome!.

    Howdy-

    I am happy with my Metzler Z6s and ME880's the ME880s give me longer where but not as performance oriented. I do not know if they are available in your sizes.

    Balder:

    Metzeler Marathons (don't know what their new name is: 880's?) are very popular with airhead owners, and they deliver pretty good mileage.

    Talking Dunlop K 491 Elite II's

    I've been using Dunlop Elite II's on my Airhead RS......very satisfied, VERY affordable. Only put 5-7K per year on this bike though.
