Reviews by Source

17 ratings, 4.5 of 5 stars. On a 2012 Dyna, the tires had more grip than they could use. Another reports that it feels like the tire is out of round, have had them rebalanced multiple times. On a 2016 Indian Chief Darkhorse, has great road feel, grip in bad weather, smooth and can hold a line, not the best when riding on gravel. On a Sportster XL883N, it is more nimble than stock tires. Another likes the tires, the only complaint is the cost.
