I'm running a combo ME880 on my C10 right now.  I hate hate hate hate these stupid tires, but I really can't justify to my wife why I need to spend $300 to replace workable tires.  So, until I wear them out, I'm stuck.

I know how you feel, I replaced the original tires on my wing with the recommended bridgestones, how anyone can like those tires I will never know. Slick, rough riding, groove following noisy PsOS. I have never been happier than the day I took them off, had to wear them out first though.

Hi all
thanks for all the input.  So from other forums and this one, it  seems the best mixed combo is the radial rear and bias front.  Any other thoughts?

I'm of the opinion that if you are going to run a mix of Radial and Bias you would be better off to run a Radial front with a Bias Ply rear. I much prefer the feel of the Radial on the front. The bias ply tires tend to be heavier than the Radials and tend to slow the steering somewhat due to the Gyro effect of the heavier tire.

I also very much approve of the radial front. I have rode bias and radial front, big difference.

Hopefully I'll find a bit of time next week to re-write the post I wrote before the crash on the Azaro dual compound rear I've been testing for Avon GB  ;)

I wish you would!
Is that tire available yet?
Say what?
