Thumbs up Wing tires

On my second G709 on the front and third G704 on the back. Had E3s on and they cupped after 3000 miles. Very noisy and the death shake under 45 from new was unnerving. Thought I had a bent rotor but everything checked out ok. Put the Stones on and shake went away. They also cupped a little, but after 10,000+ miles. I have not tried the E4. Just have had to many issues with Dunlap on my FJR and the E3

I would have sought some money back on that E3. I went through 3 sets of those and while they did make noise in the curves it wasn't until I had over 17,000 miles on the tire.

I got my tires on yesterday and it wasn't as bad a job as i thought it would be, has Centramatic balancers on front and rear so curious to see how these do with mileage. Next is the air filter change which i'm not looking forward to and not sure if it needs it but i don't know when it was changed last so it's gotta be checked. Thanks to all who recommended these Bridgestone tires, they ride great

7 rear stones and 3 front. Never a problem. 704 and 709. 80,000 miles. Granted, they don't last like some other ones but it feels solid. Proper air pressure and centrematics for continuous balance is the answer.

I've owned my GL1800 for 2.5 years now and it had the Centramatics on it from the P.O. and love them. I have been running from day one with the Excedra G704 and G709 and love the grip and feel of them, so I keep putting them on when they need replacing.
