  • Darkside question

    Narrowed the rear tire choice down to either Dunlop wintersport (run flat) or Goodyear assurance fuel max (not run flat)...

    I like the idea of a run flat but don't know about stiffer sidewall.. Winter tire may not last as long as all season like the Goodyear... Only $20 price difference...

    Anyone using a run flat darkside rear tire? Pro/con?

    From an outsiders perspective- I'd be weary of the Goodyear as the siping is directional and I don't know how that might affect handling.

        Maxxis is Allright a replacement for the old Austone. I really want run flat... I went ahead and ordered the Dunlop run flat tire ($190 with tax and shipping) should be nice for peace of mind on a long trip. Putting it on a stock cast wheel with my 65 T HD pulley soon as it arrives.

          If this has a stiffer sidewall , then I would say it's a better choice . The only reason I gave up on Darkside , was because I could not eliminate the sidewall flex . It was a DANGEROUS choice for me .
