Hi all,

I have searched this forum and other a few times but not sure im getting the right info. Looks like the continental tkc80 rear tire fits fine but the front is a bit tricker. I have read baout some people flipping a skinnier rear tire around? I want to buy a set of revzilla 110/80B19 Is this what others are running? Looks like i need also to convert to tubes?

Forgive me if i missed the posts regarding this issue
thanks

Unless you have a Desert Sled or Cafe Racer Scrambler the front wheel on all the other models is an 18" and Continental AFAIK do not make an 18" TKC80.

Do you want the knobbly tyre look or are you after something more street oriented. Continental make a TKC70 that will fit the front of an Icon but that is more a 80% road 20% dirt road type tyre.

I actually have a 120/70 17" front TKC80 chilling in my garage with minimal mileage if you're interested.

Had a total brain fart and forgot that all the Scramblers have bigger front wheels, not just the Desert Sled. Yeah, that definitely won't fit, sorry about that!

looks like i can run a rear michelin annakee on the front, can i run a 170/60-17 on the rear instead of the 180/55-17 on the stock?

I run a rear TKC80 with a tube on the front, it rubbed on the std fender so I fitter a desert sled high mount fender. This is best front tyre grips awesomely on tarseal and offroad. way better than the pirrelli's.
