Great OEM replacement
This tire was replacing a wrong sized tire on the bike before the project began. It fit and functioned perfectly on the 1986 Yamaha FZ750. The tread pattern should work well in wet weather. I chose it over contemporary construction or a size change to stay with the original design package of the year, make, and model.
