    Default Tires

    Hi Folks,
    Living in Ontario Canada.
    Looking for new front tires. Went to Canadian version of "TireRack" They don't list any 165/55r15's. Was thinking of those Federal's many talk about. Any suggestions from other Canadian riders? Other Brands. Sorry, don't like the OEM's.
    2017, RTL, 1330.

    Thank's

    Tirerack has them. Free shipping, no sales tax. I have been experimenting with air pressures. Now running 15lbs. in the front and 18lbs. in the rear. This was highly recommended by our "tire expert" Mike here in the board. They handle great, very responsive. Tom

    Tom … I'm so glad you tried those psi's ….I'm even more glad you are Happy …… If you like them in the DRY ….. you will be even more impressed if you get caught in the Rain …...……….. Thanks for the review …. Mike :ohyea .....PS, Peter and I have been urging folks to " just give it a test ", those that have are pleasantly surprised at how much the ride improves - just from a comfort standpoint..... Plus the traction is amazing ….. .... Mike
