DF is running a 205/55/16 Yokohama Advan sport (asymettrical) and has nothing but good things to say about it. No rubbing issues either.

If all goes as planned the Avid Envigor will be my next rear tire. I have tried the Falken got about 18K. Currently have General G-max with about 9K and is barely worn.

Yoko's are on my vehicles since the late '80s.
Not on Wing (yet)
They are smooth, quiet, long lasting, and good in the wet.
At least on cars....

OK it is a non run flat I now have 350 miles on it with 36 lbs. of air it is working very well rode it in some hard twisties scrap pegs and got caught in the rain . I like it where it is set at 36 lbs. tire does more than I thought it would do. so far I would replace it with the same thing. this yoko is great. the only thing is I hope it gets a lot of miles.

That was easy 3 oz. beads. been running in my GL1800 ,1300 VTX dart trailer and my colman trailer. all with great results. also solved the cupping on the wing . I'am at 17000 miles on e-3 did not hit the ware marks yet. 36 lbs. pressure with the beads.on the front tire. the trailers run smoother , I have to look in the mirror to see if there still back there.

Tire size 195-55-16 this size mite be a tad bit higher than the motorcycle tire. I have a spare rim with a m/c tire on it put the two next to each other and compaired them.also this size fits any thing bigger would have a problem getting past the battery box no rubbing on iner fender speedometer was five miles per hour off with the m/c tire now with the yoko its four miles per hour off.
