I have spent the last few hours going through old threads about tires. The general consensus for tires is Shinko. However, I dont want to be doing tires every other oil change. In the past, I have had really good luck with Bridgestone Spitfire tires. Good traction, long(ish) life. Especially on the Virago. I was able to pull 15-20000 miles on the rear. 2 rears to 1 front was usually the norm. I have tried Dunlops in the past and while no doubt they are a fantastic sticky tire....The Virago burned it up in less than an oil change. I can only imagine the Max taking it out even faster. So...Sticking with the Bridgestones, the Spitfire does not have a rear tire size for the Vmax. The Metzlers on it now, I dont like. The back seems fine, the front wants to kill me at low speeds with a death wobble. I cant even ride the bike with one hand without the front going into a wobble. So....looking for decent mileage tires, I came across the Bridgestone Exedra Max tires. Labeled as a cruiser/touring tire. People seem impressed with it but I also know that these tires arent on a Max. Does anyone here run these tires on a Max or any other bike? Whats your opinion on them? Recommend? Mileage? Stability? While I do some quick red light to red light fun...I mainly ride reasonable so the hardness of the tire doesnt really bother me. With my location....miles add up very fast and I dont want to be breaking tires down 3 or 4 times a season. Thats the reason I am looking for a decent mileage tire that I can get a couple oil changes on before replacing. Thanks.
