  • Avon Cobra Chrome front tire opinions?

    I have the enforcer 19" front rim and badly need a tire. Been looking around and found a decent price on the Avon Cobra Chrome, and reviews seem to say its sticky, but not a lot of mention of tire life.
    Anyone running this front tire?

      Ran the Avon Cobras for years and absolutely friggin loved them. The only tires that I would put on all my street rides. Got 14K rear and 16K front on my Royal Star Venture which is a bigger and heavier machine than my RS and it spends most of it's riding time 2 up. I had them on my 09 RS and they were like riding on rails.

      Last year was the first year for the Chromes and I put them on the RSV. The improvement in handling over the already great Cobras is something to experience and they are also supposed to last longer than the standard Cobras.

      I am putting the Chromes on my "new to me" 16 Indian Roadmaster over this winter. I will also put them on my future RS if I can find one in my area that isn't as over priced as they have been this past year in my area.

      In other words, you can't go wrong with Chromes. You know that feeling when you come into a corner a little too hot and the corner is a little sharper than you expected and your butt cheeks start puckering? With the Avons, it's comforting to know that you can lean the bike as much as you need to without worrying about losing traction.

        I have a set of my 05 RS, also using Ride On, and I really like the way it rides and handles.

          I'm liking what you guys are saying. I'm darkside on the back so just looking at the front tire.
