Street Bike Tires

Tue Aug 13, 2019 2:10 am

Other than my Nissan Leaf, I also own motorcycle, a 2015 Honda Rebel. I would like to buy a new set of street bike tires for it. What brand do you guys recommend?

I used to run Continentals on my old light weight street bikes. My 2002 BMW came with Michelin sport touring tires. I like the performance and they last long enough to be cost effective so I have been using them for the past 17 years.

I recommend pretty much any well-reviewed tire that isn't made by a Chinese brand. The tire market for cars is being flooded with crappy Chinese branded (as opposed to international brands made in China) tires, and I expect it's the same with motorcycle tires.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.
