Bridgestone motorcycles Tires GL1800

Dark Wing--Darkside Gold Wing (car tire on a Gold Wing)

Bridgestone has been making tires since the 1930's when it was founded by Shojiro Ishibashi, whose last name when translated into English means "Stone Bridge." With their factory located in Japan, Bridgestone has formed alliance with the metric motorcycle manufacturers and has developed many bike-specific tires, such as the Exedra tire made for the Honda Gold Wing GL1800. Bridgestone has an extensive family of tires with premium offerings for Metric Cruisers, Adventure bikes, Sport Touring and Hypersport. All Bridgestone tires are made in one factory in Japan, where Quality Control is of the utmost importance. This also assures great consistency when replacing tires versus a manufacturer with production facilities all over the world. As the current supplier of tires for the MotoGP, we know that Bridgestone must be doing something right.

This may sound odd, as i have not actually ordered from this site myself and cannot rate their service, but as far as prices go, DAMN! for sportbike tires, esp. Pilot Powers and the like, they ship both tires to your door for less than my local shops just sell the rubbers for!!
The american motorcycle tire store looks like they have similar prices, but i'd guarantee that their shipping is more...
For my bike, for front and rear pilot powers, it's like $220.99 shipped to my door. I just talked to a guy at a local dealership yesterday w a new pilot power, JUST THE REAR, and he was smiling b/c he "only" paid $140 for it

    I have a rear tire w/ less than 1m on it that had a nail stuck in it. I have heard that the tire can be vulcanized and good as new. I ve also heard both opinions on plugging and patching them. Does anyone have any thoughts or opinons on this?

    • I would have it vulcanized at a shop ,then start looking for a new tire after getting a new tire change them out and keep the old one as a spare

    I ve been looking online and I ve found front tires that say they re the same size as my rear and rear tires that say they re the same size as my front. As long as the size is the same (100/90/19) would I be fine putting a tire labeled rear on the front? Also, I m looking mostly at dual sport tires if that makes a difference.

    • I would not do it. Biggest difference will be the tread pattern on a front tire will be a balance of forward motion and turning ability. A rear tire will be geared towards putting power to the road and not at all for turning. If you were to get in an accident and they noticed the bike was mis equipped they might not pay your claim. If a tire could go on front/rear they would not designate it as rear only.
