I have a 2008 LT with 4500 miles it NEEDS new tires. It currently has the Battlax 020 on it. They are original, the rear has fair amount of tread left, but due to age Im replacing both. They seem ok, but noticed they are very wavey and bumpy to the feel.
I have not been happy with the M 880, my 09 had them and didn't care for them.
For the reat tires, I really am wanting to try the Shinko 777HD due to multiple reviews and about how much it sticks. Also have seen some reviews say it doesn't last long. Well the past 2 yrs I have only averaged 5k miles a year so if I have to replace it again... oh well.
The weight rating I am concerned about, the speed rating a bit but if 130mph Im good. And not sure about the radial Bias ply thing, not sure if I should be extra concerned or not. Also want a similar sticky from tire because I don't want it loosey goosey up front. I have checked on here and Kurt from the BMW club in Illinois. But still would appreciate some help.
I would like help trying to pick a good sticky tire for the front. I am considering the Dunlop road 3, or the Shinko 005 advance or 016 Verge 2X, Bridgestone Battlax BT023 or the BT45 or T30GT, Avon Roadrider AM26 or Storm 3D, Mich Pilot road4 GT, Pirelli Anglel GT... there might be a few others.
Is there any tire of these that I should stay away from and why? Thank you very much
I have always gotten great direction from here
