    Tire Recommendations?

    Posted by Kevin on 6/12/2001, 10:44 am

    I'm looking for tires for my 1974 Suzuki GT-250, and I am having a hard time finding any good technical information on tires other than manufacturers' web sites. I'm replacing the rims with Sun aluminums, and upping each in size, so that I'll have a 1.85 x 18 in the front and a 2.15 x 18 in the rear. I was running a 3.00 x 18 IRC tire on the front, and a 3.50 x 18 IRC tire on the rear, but I am thinking I will move those up a little to 90/90 or 100/90 up front and a 110/90 or 120/90 in the rear. Anyone know where to find good info on tires this size? I was looking at Metzelers, Pirellis, and Bridgestones, but who's to know which is really better? I am going to use the bike as a daily rider and for driving down the twisty back roads, so I'd prefer grippy to long lasting....
