I am having a difficult time locating proper tires for my project.  Goodyear Eagle or Dunlop 491 Elite II preferred but would love sugestions.
My Front is 100/90-19 and the rear 130/90-16

Rear as hens teeth. The closest I have found is a Bridgestone Spitfire, but only the front. I have yet to find a rear.

I have had good luck with tire ink pens in the past  to add white letters.
Not for everyone but i had good results
That way I wasnt tied to any  brand of tire

Update. Dunlop called back. They are not making any RWL tires. I asked about one offs or short production runs. At this point with demand they are not taking on anything additional. Personally I think “demand” is code speak for “we can’t keep up because labor and supply issues. Lol.

I’ll look into Goodyear

Have been running Dunlop Elite 3's and 4's for years, and love riding the 82 1135 with those tires.

How much per tire?

If the question is for me, I generally buy tires before I need them.  Doing so has saved me a significant amount of money spent on tires that would otherwise not be affordable.
The last rear 130/90 B16 Elite 4 tire was $125 + tax w/shipping included.  Found a new Elite 3 rear around the same time for $59 + w/shipping.  Front tires averaged $100- $125.  Picked up a nice used Elite 4 front for $50 recently, so I have a decent used set ready if/when needed.

Tire deals come around on occasion, but the need is to think ahead and be ready to grab when they do.



If you think I'm a cheap sob, you are right in your thinking.
Keeping a forty year old relic running on a budget of fumes has not been easy, but it has been easier to deal with my own mistakes, instead of paying someone else for theirs...for the most part.
