Classic Tire
« on: March 25, 2015, 03:13:41 PM »
Hi I was looking for classic tires for my bullet. Something like this:

But not sure if they the size RE fits. What size we run on RE? Any leads to similar looking tires for bullet?

Thanks

we have 19" wheels on our Iron Barrel Bullets. the stock tire sizes are 3.25 x 19 front and 3.50 x 19 rear

I run the Avon AM26 tires and I use 90/90-19 front and 100/90-19 rear.

If you look at that page for your link and go back to classic tires you will find the Dunlop K70 and the Heidenau K34 as good choices for classic look for the Bullet.

Thanks! I personally like the look of Shinko Super Classic tires. Don't know if any other brand makes like that for bullet sizes?

Well that Shinko looks like a copy of the vintage Firestone tires. https://www.cokertire.com/tires/styles/motorcycle-bike.html
You will find a Coker and Firestone in a 3.25-19 and a 4.00-19. Front will fit, rear probably will also but I would ask if maybe someone else is running that larger tire on their Bullet.

A buddy of mine runs the IRC GS-11 tire and likes it a lot.  Good traction and decent quality with a vintage look.  They make a variety of sizes that work on the REs.

1993 CBR 600 (sold for)

Wow I really like them! they look same as Shinko's but what size is for front and for rear? They also are double the price though!
