Modern Tire Recommendations?

Post by M7 » Fri Aug 26, 2005 4:33 pm

I have a 1964 Hawk and want to run a modern looking sport tire. <br /><br />What companies make the correct size and what is the widest size I can run without modifying the fenders? <br /><br />I don't care for the dual sport ancient look of the original tires.<br /><br />Thanks,<br /><br />-M7

m7, Welcome to our forum! I too spent alot of time on tire choice fo my CB77 with a (look) in mind. Here is what I found: 90/9018h is as close as I can find for the front which is eq. to a 300.18 and rear is 100/90 18h which is eq to3.25-3.50 18 both are slightly oversize but fit and look good. Hopfully others will have some info on this.Good luck,Steve Greer
