    There’s posts on here with the info your looking for. On stock wheels, the Shinko tire is a very good alternative. The tour masters l believe is what I ran last in my stock wheels. I went up a size front and rear, most of us do. Takes a little patience getting the rear tire back in, and will look extremely close but it’ll be just fine. Hope another reply comes soon, for more information for you. The forum has been sort of dry lately

    I like the Tourmasters for price and grip. Not the best milage but that is the trade off. The 170 will fit fine in the back and looks good but i did loose a few mpg with it. Next change i am going back to the 150. Up front i run the 110 but it has been said the 120 fits also.

    Got a Shinto 777 170 in the rear. Love it. Prolly wont go look back to previous brands based on price and longevity.

    The OEM front wheel works best with a 110 width tire. The 120 will fit. But most guys I know end up ditching the 120, after trying it, until they get wider wheels. I 've seen a 180 in back on a stock wheel, but the same situation, it doesn't wear right or ride good. 170 is a good compromise in back, on OEM wheels.
