  • Avon "Gangster" wide whitewall tires

    I recently bought a 2001 FLHRCI with Avon "Gangster wide whitewalls. As you know these are directional tread tires. Aside from the fact that these tires like to follow every little crack and rain groove on the road, is this considered a safe tire for the conditions it will see on this bike?

  • Avon Gangster tires #210-019

    Will these work on a 2003 Road King? The specs say the tire width is 130, another says 140. Which is it? The fitment list only 2004 and up Road King. Anyone know why these tires would not work on an '03 RK? Thanks

  • Biggest Tire That Can Fit on my 2001 Fat Boy with NO Mods.

    I am looking into getting a wider tire for the rear of my 2001 Fat Boy. I was wondering how wide I can go without doing any mods, or with slight mods. Is the 130 tire the only option for the rear?
