205/55/R16 is a common tire size used by Darksiders, but not as common as 195/55/R16. What tire comes in a 200/55 ?

Lee.
Darksider since I finally saw the Light.

Chopin,
Someone had a tire vendor link that listed the 200/55 but I can't seem to find the link again.

Finally found it Chopin,

they have 55 and 60s 200. I am not sure if they are adequate for the Wing though.

I am curious if anyone is using them

Oh! I assumed you were talking about car tires. I run on a car tire. 195/55/R16.

@nando pay little attention to CC he's quite a pied piper.

Here's a link to a load rating chart, that would be one thing I would check.

This is the one I meant to post

I mean motorcycle tires Chopin.

I did a tenure on CT. Great option for touring particularly. After a while the handling got me for some reason, even though I know its not that bad, but...anyway, I went back to motto tires. I guess I like contributing money to Corporations.
budoka and Chopin like this.

I have been out of the world of motorcycle tires for about six years now. Forgive me, but when I see tires in widths of those numbers I think of car tires.

Ha! crack me up

I hope that antagonism is in jest.

Here was my ultimate take on CT: If Dunlop would make a winter car tire like the one I was once used, with rounded corners in the shape of a moto tire, it would be a great tire for a touring wing.

I happen to believe that motorcycle tires are being made well below present manufacturing capabilities; consequently, producing poor tires. The fact these car tires are lasting touring folks 20k miles is indicative of how poorly present motorcycle tires quality are.
