    Default Tire shop questions ???

    The 109 I just recently purchased is in need of some rubber. Back tire real soon due to the fun I have been having. LOL
    So I have a few question
    1. The 160 60 18 front is the look I want. All the tires I see are listed as rear tires, is that what everyone is using?
    2. I am in Dearborn Is there a good local tire shop that will mount a non-factory spec size tire? The 160 60 18 on our front rim and balance it?
    3. My bike has the Dun 250. Is a 260 the largest for a stock rim.
    4. Once again who will do the rear mount?

    Thanks in advance

    Most of us (if not all), with 160/60/18 tire have indeed tire designed for

    rear wheel, and at least 90% of us run it in reverse rotation as suggested

    by manufacturer Metzeler itself, if used for front wheel.
