I just bought a GL1500. Front tire is K177. However, rear tire is Maxxis GT Touring tire, brand new. Its the right size and rating. Apparently Maxxis is a division of Cheng Shin. ANyone have this tire or tried it? It looks to be cheaper than the Dunlops and Bridgestones. I wonder if the PO put a cheap tire on it since he knew he was trading it.
