I know there has often been thread about tires, and about the type of tires that can be used on the K1200LT.
However, during these years some tire models have gone out of production, and some brands do not have tires with the necessary features for the K1200LT.
I know someone uses Avon tires, but I (in Italy) have never been able to find them.
On my 2004 K1200LT (second series) I have to
use this type of tire:
Rear: 160/70 B17 79V Reinf. TL
Front: 120/70 B17 58V TL
These are the ONLY tires
that I can use to avoid problems with the police in the event of checks or accidents.
For example, I can't use the "R17" version, the radial version.
The only tires that I find with these characteristics are the Bridgestone and the Metzeler. I do not find them in the Avon catalog in Italy.
After the preface, the questions:
1) Are there any Avon tires with these characteristics in your country?
2) Do you know other manufacturers that offer tires with these sizes?
3) Are these tires mandatory for your bikes too?
I thank in advance every answer you can give me.
