What front tire is usually paired with a

SHINKO 777 on a C10? Thanks

I had a Bridgestone battleaxe paired with mine when I had a 777 . Worked well but I will say the only time I've had this bike slip out on me in a corner was with the 777 . I love the Avon Storms I have now . They seem to stick as far as I am willing to lean her over no matter what .

Just put on a new Avon Spirit on the front. Ready for National with new rubber. I tried a new way to unmount my tire. After using 6" c-clamps to break the bead, and ty-wrapping the tire beads together. I ran a 1" web soft tie around the tire. Then I clamped the wheel to a 4 x 4 over head deck post being careful not to catch the brake disc on anything. Hooked a come along to the soft tie and the other end to another post. I pulled the first part of the bead over the top of the rim and then just a small pry at the edges of the contact point of the tire to the rim and off it came. The prying is optional but it just expands the area of the bead that is off the rim faster than just pulling.

Using the tywraps, clamps, and the cable hoist was the fastest and easiest way I have ever removed a tire from the rim. Zero damage and tire irons are optional for removal.
