I have the original tires on my C50LT (iRC GS23). I just turned 14,000 mi. and will need a new rear soon. Car tires I know a little about, bike tires are a major question mark. I have been happy with the overall performance of the OEM tires, but I don't exactly stretch the envelope either. I'm looking at a few tires and wondering if someone has one or has info on one. I'm looking at cheaper tires because I can't really see the difference between them & a more expensive tire. Pirelli MT66, iRC Wild Flare, Duro (a new brand?), Dunlop K555J. Like I say, I know about my iRC GS23, but would appreciate any info on the others, or a tire you have been very happy with. Alot of my riding is around town, but I have been known to take three week trips also. I'll be going to Wash. D.C. for Rolling Thunder from Ellenton, Fl. Wife rarely gets on the back.
