These stock oem's are wearing just like the first few sets on my VTX 1800 T. I think I will be going with 40/42 with dyna beads ... then see what happens. I on that bike I ran Metz up front and E3 back aft ... but the price for the front E3 is good so....

Front and rear delivered to your door for $289 is great. I'll turn my riding bud on to that. He is pleased with the mileage that he has " squeezed " out of his E3s . Mike has no interest in going " Darkside " (yet ), so he is tolerant of the noisy ride.

i found that when e3's are new is the time to always make sure that the tires are at 38/41, less noise now and less noise later

It's a different beast. 1800's are tough on tires, especially rear tires. Why? Ask an engineer. There is a difference between " road worthy wear " and " audible annoying wear ". The audible annoying wear, to me, comes way before the road worthy wear. Some can ignore it, I can't and its not for a lack of trying.

I have the E-3's but next time c/t for sure on the back and undecided about the front.
Does Conti make a front tire? I had these on my 1100 Shadow and they wore very well.

I don't think I've heard a single good report on E3's on an 1800, seems like everyone hates the noise. sumnc, did you not like the Bridgestones the bike came with?

I had bridgestone on the wing when i bought it new and had no problems.Got 13000 kilometers out of them with no noise.Put a E3 on the rear an after 6-7 thousand kms they were noisey as hell and are still noisey after putting 13000 kms on them.Although there good for approx 2-3 thousand more kms i have a new set of bridgestones in the shed ready to install this spring.E3,s in my opinion are just to loud.

I havn,t tried conti,s or met,s .DO you think there a better tire than bridgestone.The E3,s are good tires but to loud and annoying.
ii really couldn't say if conti's or met's are better than bridgstone tires, i'll just say i won't buy bridgestone tires regardless to the application
