Hello everyone, I'm new to this group and this site so bear with me if I ask or do something crazy.  I have a 96 Goldwing SE that I have triked out with a wheels forward configuration.  I needed a new rear tire, so I purchased a Austone tire {with a tube}. After mounting, the tire is rubbing somewhere. I noticed on one of the topics that someone mentioned that you may have to modify something a little bit to alleviate this problem, Can anyone help me out with this? Thanks!

WELCOME ABOARD!!!

 

Others are more knowledgeable than me, especially the ones riding on CT's on the rear, , but my thought was, How much air pressure did you put in that Austone??  You might remedy the rub with more air.

The Austone can / will rub on the lower front plastic fender.  Most people normally wire tie it up.  I just removed that part of the fender.

I run a run flat tire on my 1800. A Bridgestone Blizzard LM60  195/55/R16 tubeless run flat...love it, doesn't feel like a car tire. It feels more like a bike tire. It leans without any hesitation. This is my third run flat and this is the best one yet. I run the air pressure with 1 up at 28 lbs.

I used a Radial Dunlop Wintersport 175/60-16 Run Flat on my 94 1500. I loved that tire . It seems to be out of production or not sold in the USA at this time.

On the front I used the Dunlop Elite radial which is listed for an 1800 Goldwing . I never had any problems using the radial on the front of the car tire on the rear.
