Yeah it does look good. Doesn't look quite as full as the Metz 160 to me but maybe that's not a bad thing. Let us know how it handles please. I forget is this Dunnie 160 being run backwards like the Metz 160 as well?

Have you test rode it yet? How does it feel and corner?
Hahaha....sorry you'll have to wait another 3-4 months for a report....tis winter with here with lots off white sh1tty stuff :D

As for the Metz 160...I doubt it is wider cos with the Dunnie there is very little space between the tire and the side of the fender :bigthumbsup:

Thats A 160/60/18 right, Kev? And where and, how much was it? Santa is going to hook me up with new sneakers, and I like that one you put on! I've ran a 160 before and loved it with the 250 on the rear so let me know please.

You can get that Dunlop Roadsmart 160/60/18 for 140$ and Dunlop elite 3 250/40/18 for 152$, with Dyna Beads 5 Oz. Kit 17$ at jakewilson.com
That with K&N Air Filters and Redline Full Synthetic with K&N Oil Filter and Scythe 2 Mirrors are going to be my Winter maintenance/mods. Did the math around 500$. Tax return here I come!!!!

I also have the 160 Dunlop Roadsmart. It is larger than the other 160's I've seen, those being a Pirelli Angel and another Dunlop. On hot days it will drag gravel through the inside fender, scraping all the way(I did not do the fender bolt thing). There are about 3-5mm of clearance to the fender. Also, it will grab a wheel chock if you're not careful, so make sure the chock is anchored. I love the tire, it tracks well, has great grip, even in the wet, and is really not so bothered by cracks/grooves in the pavement. So far, mileage looks to be very good.

When it pulls gravel through the fender does it do any visible damage? I'm thinking about a 160 front but I do occasionally get on gravel and they repair the roads around here with that pea gravel stuff so I'm not sure. Don't want visible damage on my front fender.

I don't get it

Sorry if I sound dumb:
I understand using a rear tire to get the size and look you want, but why mount it backwards?
What effect does that have on grip/handling/and wet roads?
:dontknow:
