Vulcan 650S tires
« on: August 22, 2017, 12:48:18 am »
I'm needing to replace the tires on my bike before I head up to Suches next month.  Has anyone had any experience with the Avon 3D X-M tires?  Thanks for the help.

No problems with those on my C14 so far.   I only have 1-2k or so on them.  Cliff I think runs them and is happy and he is over 180k with them I think.  They also replaced mine after a puncture at 300 miles even tough I mounted them myself.

Thanks. I asked her if she wanted stability of responsiveness... she said "responsiveness" - that's my girl :great:
3D X-Ms are on the way, should arrive next day or so. Then the decision is how lazy I'll be...
Do I mount & balance them?  Do I take the wheels off and take them to the shop?  or do I get really lazy and we take the bike and tires to the shop?  :017:

Thanks for your input.  Jorge is going to "lazy" and we're having a shop put them on for us.  I can't wait to see how they feel
