Watch that pressure!
I've about 4000 miles in this and the front and so far, so good. However....after talking to a Cobra rep. at a bike show I find out I've been running my tires under inflated even though I've been running them 2 lbs under max per the sidewall! Seems load determines inflation as per the table on the website. Seems I need to be running 48 psi in the front and 50 psi in the rear! So,words to the wise.......regardless of manufacturer, check the load/inflation table for your manufacturer, you may be doing it wrong! If not for the Cobra rep., I'm sure these tires would have worn out prematurely. Makes me wonder if the Dunlops I had before these would have lasted longer if I had known this! Thanks to Cobra for smart reps and great tires!

First go with the Avons
2011 Harley Road King. My plan was to replace my OEM Dunlops with the Dunlop American Elite, About $330 for the pair. I found these at DK on sale with a rebate, $229 delivered. I had to try these after doing research. Make sure you go to Avon's website for model specific tire presure. These have to be aired up much higher to gain the miles or they will wear fast. Do not use Harley's suggested lbs.

2013 HD Ultra Classic
Great tires for handling but you do give up a little in mileage, the last set I got 10,000 miles out of the rear and 15,000 out of the front. There are always trade offs with everything. Overall I would buy these tires again the ride and grip in all riding conditions were great! Way better than the stock tires and a great value price wise.

Buyer Beware!!!!!
Put this tire on before leaving to Sturgis from California. It was a 4,000 mi. rnd trip and the tire lost all traction and needs to be replaced. From the start it didn't feel right but I kept thinking it would get better, it never did.

Because of the weather since I had the tires installed, I only rode the bike twenty miles from the dealership to home. But the twenty miles were very smooth and they handled very well. I will say this, I would definitely buy tires from Dennis Kirk again! Good fast service. Best prices.
