Tires for 1150RT

Postby ddupar » Fri Feb 14, 2014 11:37 pm

My 2003 1150RT is my first Beemer. Bought it used about 4000 miles ago. It needs a new front tire, and the front and rear are different brands. On the bikes I've had in the past the tires have always matched and I kept it that way. I'm not a high performance rider, so assume keeping the tires matched makes sense. The rear is near new, or was when I bought the bike and is an Avon AV56 Storm ST. The front is a Michelin. I'm not familiar with the Avon brand. Does anyone have any feedback on these tires? The matching front appears to be the AV55 Storm ST.

Your feedback is most appreciated

thanks for all the feedback, at least from those at breakfast this morning.

I ended up purchasing the rear matching Avon AV55 tire for the front from A&S this morning. Price was less than I saw on the internet last night and I'll have it in time to install at tech day next Sunday. Now just need someone to show me how to use the tire changing equipment.
