My intention was to replace them with new Dunlop EIIIs, but, apparently they don't make the EIII anymore. I found Dunlop American Elites....and E4s, but they don't have one(radial) sized for the rear. They DO have them in a bias ply.....and they're REALLY proud of them. :whistling:

1500 wings didn't come with radial tires from the factory so bias ply are good. I had Dunlop e-3's on my 1500 wing until my niece got a flat on the rear tire so now I have a low mileage e-3 up front and an e-4 out back

I have EIIIs front and rear now, and really wanted to replace them with the same....just not gunna happen. :crying:
The E4s seem to be the natural replacements, bias or radial. I just wanted to try a radial on it just to see how much better the ride would be, if any. I put Michelin radials on my old 750A years ago and the difference was unbelievable.

Don't actually need new tires right now, so it's not a "must do immediately" thing, but I will be replacing them soon as the weather gets too cold to ride in the next month or so. :yes:
