New Member Hey!

Hi,
Been on the site for about a month and joined cause I finally put a deposit on my first bike an 09 with 3626 miles. I expect to get it on the 20th.

Anyway the front tire on it is low 3/32nds and I'm debating having the dealer swap it out before I get the bike for $190 dunlop sportmax. Any thoughts?

thanks for any recommendations

BT023 will be a better choice not Dunlop if you are new to bikes.

Just my 2cts thoughts.

Is it ok to mix front and back tires on a bike?

The Michelin Pilot Road 2's are the only tires I've tried other than the stock Dunlops and I LOVE them.

Yes - UNLESS they are wildly different (ie - knobbie and regular street), which can STILL work as long as you don't get aggressive...!
