darkside down

Post by Bam Bam » Mon Jun 15, 2015 4:13 pm

Damn, go look a bike this morning and my rear tire (goodrich kdw2) is flat , long srcew has gone in the tread and after going flat came out the sidewall. I checked and it seems they no longer make this tire in a 205/55/16. Any suggestions on other car tires. I did like the look of the kdw2, and don't want a regular looking car tread. I was looking at the toyo proxes R1R, but was told I need a race # to purchase them. Anyone got any ideas. :)

Thanks Boone, I was quite happy with the KDW2, and would have purchased it again. I couldn't see myself going back to an MC tire, looking forward to trying this one out. :cool:

Goodyear Triple Tread and the Nexen N5000 are US favourites. I'm on a General HP 43 psi and love it.

ya, unfortunately had a short life with the KDW2, think I only put about 5000 miles on it. However I have had the same luck with MC tires in the past, unlucky nail or screw to shorten the life.
ah, well, paid 125$ for the KDW@ and now 195$ for the Toyo, the tread looks very good, can't wait to get it on. :cool:
