street legal xr50

Guess I better start looking for another front tire then. I haven't had any problems with mine. It holds up ok. Only one time did mine slip and it scared the fck outta me, but it was on a neighborhood street at like 1 am with the roads not being traveled much and the moisture from the dew contributed to the slip. But other than that it hasn't failed me. I mainly do street commute and the occasional spirited ride

your front is a stealth though you should be fine.. just run about 32 lbs of pressure or so and ride the out of it.

I would say for your average street bike, any decent brand/model street tire works well. If you want cheap and hook, especially if you are starting out, Shinko....

All that said, I just slapped on a Shinko...
That is an excellent review and comparison. Thanks for that input.
