    Default Where do you guys buy tires from?

    Come Spring I'll need a set of wide white wall tires for the Vulcan. The cheaper the better. LOL I'm thinking just some stock Dunlop replacements.

    I always check Ebay, but if not, I will try to support the local guy. Also bought for JP.

    I have the hardest problem finding tires for my bikes. My Ninja 250 had scooter size tires, my FZR had big ole 19" rear and my Drifter uses a 140/90-16 rear. The 140 is a very popular size but I want wide whitewalls and my choices are very slim in that size.

    Would there be any downside to running 130/19-16's on the rear instead of the 140?

    I would be concerned about it affecting the handling characteristics of it bike.
