Colorado tires for a 2000 K1200lt

Greatings my high altitude mates.
my K1200lt is ready for some new skins and the previous owner may not have had the privilege of knowing about this site as the bike has a D205 in the rear and a D225 in the front.

I have read about the Bt020's ME880's and Avon Storm II, everyone has it's benefits and liabilities, but I was wondering what you folks use given the cold winters, and slick roads we have to deal with in Colorado? plenty of twisties up here too.

also if you can recommend a good shop , or tire place , It would be much appreciated,

thanks everyone and ride safe

Henry,

I run the ME880s with good success, two up and single. When you come out we have "tar snakes" and sand in the corners (depending on time of year) which NO tire can help.

I use the ME880's. BMW of Denver has been very good for me - here's a link
