Anyone recommend a good tire for a 2011 Wide Glide. I'm not real heavy on the throttle but definitely ride some curvy roads. Thanks for any recommendations.

metzlers made in Germany are a good tire the ones made in Brazil have known issues with tread separation.....Michelin Commander II is a good dry road tire but folk say wet road traction is not so good.....Avons get a good report on traction and I'll try those next

Rubber ones with good tread. Seriously, I get more miles out of Dunlops. Metzlers are better for the twistys though.

Going with the Pirelli Night Dragons. Not much to choose from in 180, we'll see how they go. Thanks for all the help.

One thing, just making sure these are tubeless 180/60/B17.

You should have been more specific. Didn't realize you were looking for Yuppie tires. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
