    Are you station at Tyndall AFB. I saw your picture with the jet and your Spider. I was station there in 1963 to 1965.

    Default rear tire

    My question is this for those of you who have replaced your tire with a non Kendra tire. What tire did you choose and how many miles have you put on your new tire? Oh, and what PSI are you running?? I've narrowed my selection down to the following and leaning towards the Yokohama or Michelin. Not interested in going back to a Kendra tire.

    Yokohama S-Drive 205/55 R15

    Michelin Premier A/S 205/60 R-15

    Dunlop Direzza DZ102 205/50 R15

    General Altimax RT 43 215/60-15
    I have a 225/50 R15 kendra on the back. Shouldn't I be ordering the same size Michelin?

    Neil, in a nutshell, the sizes stamped on the tyre differ between manufacturers depending on how they do there measuring, so one manufacturer's 225 may be an inch or so wider or narrower than another manufacturer's tyre. For that reason, it's safest to go with aftermarket tyres that people are already running on their Spyders. There are a large number of threads on this that will provide more detail.

    The Michelin Premier A is not avalable in the 225/50 R15 size. I am running the 205/60 R15 and it works great + the speed indicated is now closer to to the true speed (per GPS).

    Default Deal charge?

    I am putting th General altimax RT-43 on in a few days. My dealership will install it but wants 150.00 to install the 70.00 tire. If I take the old tire on rim in to Discount Tire (where I bought the new General) they will change it out for free. Guess which way I plan to go.

    i put kumho car tire on my rear ...ordered it at wal mart and had a custom bike shop install it..the 2 ply tires are not worth the trouble...the car tire is a 4 ply and i was stunned at how much better my bike handled... it also will wear much better and last at least twice as long...oh by the way..the tire only cost 80.00....you will have to decide how much air to carry in the tire.. i carry 22 pounds and it seems to do very well...you just have to watch the wear and adjust accordingly... i also put 4 ply car tires on the front and carry 16 pounds in them...much better response at least as good of a ride or better...

    Default Dealer

    May I ask you who is your Can Am dealer in BC? Thanks

    Default Yokohama 205/55/15 rear tire

    Purchased tire from Discount tire. Matched online price $76 inc tax. They wanted to know what car I needed it for. I told them Toyota Celica. Replaced rear tire today at RN, $99.00 to install. I have a better ride with less vibration....smooth. I like this tire.
