Just wanted to get some thoughts on a replacement for my stock rear tire 05 Fatboy. Go with the same Dunlop 401 or something different? I don't know anything about motorcycle tires - but I ride fairly hard. The local stealer wants $165.95 + $85 labor - don't think so!
new to D/FW Texas area if anyone can suggest a local shop
Tires are like oil choices, personal. I tried the METZ which is a softer compound than the Dunlop. It sticks well, but wears quickly.
I went back to the Dunlops, front and rear.
The Dunlop 401 series tire boasts:
The Dunlop D401 motorcycle tire has an advanced tread pattern and tread compound for improved wet and dry grip. Computer-Optimized tread profile reduces cupping for even wear and exceptional mileage.
The only tire approved by Harley-Davidson for it's cruiser bikes
Improved performance over a wide range of operating temperatures; siped for added grip in the wet
Matching front and rear tread pattern gives greater stability
Increased abrasion resistance
H-rated for speeds up to 130 mph
