Has anyone put a 175/70-13 Darkside on a Sliver wing? I have measured it 6 ways to Sunday and it should fit.  bounce

While I have no experience with a Darkside tire, others have.
Check out this link on this forum: http://tinyurl.com/l4ezt6a

Also, a bit of an introduction would be appreciated. What year SWing. Maybe something about you. Just sayin'.

By the way, Welcome to this site. It's a great one with lots of information. welcome

yes the 175/70/13 tire will fit. I run a sumitono car tire and like it. Usually mentioning a car tire and motorcycle in the same sentence is like poking a hornets nest with a short stick, usually brings out lots of action

  I think he meant to say "6 ways to Sunday".      welcome      Welcome Dealmker. You can actually edit your own posts by using the edit box in the upper right of your post. No need to ask how I am aware of this, since I have never made a misteak.   Laughing

COOL and thank you for the quick answers! I just bought a 2003 600 w/ABS in Candy red and I love it! Just got rid of a Vespa which was nice as well.

Yes, indeed it will fit. I currently have one on my 2006 Silverwing with ABS and test rode it around a bit (200 miles) to check out how it performs. But a 165/65R13 might be a better choice as it will be closer to the stock scooter tire diameter. That is the size I use most for my 2006 and it does not have a negative effect on the ABS system nor the speedometer/odometer. Not sure if the 175/70R13 will affect ABS, but it does under-report odometer mileage by a small percentage. However, the usually optimistic speedometer reads closer to speeds reported by my GPS. The wheel I had that tire mounted to did not have a pulser ring for the ABS system to use, so I can't be positive as to its effect on the ABS braking system. I plan on getting a pulser ring mounted and will do more testing in the spring to see what, if any effect the much taller 175/70R13 tire has on the ABS system. I actually like how the 175/70R 13 feels compared to the 165/65R13. The squared off shoulder car tire feel is less prevalent with the taller tire. Backing off from the throttle, it seems to coast along easier & longer too.

BTW, there is a Darkside car tire section where this subject is discussed. I would encourage you to partake there where the oft controversial subject matter is accepted and less likely to cause heated arguments.
