Honda Gold Wing GL1800 Tires
There is a balance between tire mileage and traction. Some people may like the great mileage you get on the Dunlops, but I find that the "stickiness" of the Bridgestones make for such a better ride that I am more than willing to give up tread. I have been doing over 18K a year - so I go through tires - but prefer the safe and solid feel.
I have found these to run true (especially when I also add Dynabeads) with no cupping and they really stick to the curves.
While traveling last summer I mis-calculated and had to get a tire before I got home. Dealer only had the Dunlop and I hated the ride so much I only put about 2K on it before I replaced the tire.
I have a 2006 GL1800 and ride a good mix of 2-up and solo. The OEM D250 got me about 8,000 on the rear tire before needing changed. I went to the Dunlop E-3. It was a smooth ride but it started cupping badly at about 7,000 miles and it was replaced at 8,400 miles. My front tire was cupping very badly with the E-3 as well. I've had 2 sets of E-3's and got the same results with both. I watch my tire pressures closely and don't feel that was an issue. Last Fall I went to the new Bridstone. The ride is smoother, the traction is way better - I go through curves like I'm glued to the road and the best thing so far is that the GL1800 front end wobble when decelerating is gone. So far no cupping either. It's just a much better tire for the GL1800 in my opinion. My best friend replaced his E-3's on his 2008 GL1800 and has almost the same exact findings - no wobble, no cupping and better traction.
I run a 2008 with E-3's. My brother runs a 2012 with the Bridgestones shown here. We were comparing wear yesterday, brother has 8,000 miles on his bike, (mostly without a passenger) He needs a new rear tire now-- center three inces is flat and slick. His front tire shows little wear. My E-3's have 13,000 on them now, mostly two up riding, and I'm certain to make it to 18,000. My rear tire won't be in nearly as bad condition(maybe inch center flat) as the stones are already with only 8K. We both do good tire maintenance and ride about the same way and on the same trips. I will definitely be replacing by dunlops with dunlops. Yes, they make a little noise, but that's the only negative and it's not significant enought for me to give up that kind of mileage.
Was running the e3s and did not like the feel as well as they cupped real bad.I decided to try these and wow these stick to the road a lot better,they take a little getting used to with the tar snakes but the ride and the cornering are much better.
I used to run Dunlop E3's. But since Honda moved production of the Goldwing back to Japan this is the OEM tire now, and the price for the combo is a Sweet Deal. Ran a set of these last year and I have 12,000 miles on them now so I just ordered a new Combo set for the Summer.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
