I run those tyre's i love them i find them good for the highway and everyday riding they heat up fast..

As for tyre pressure i run the front at 38psi and the rear at 42psi this is for any weather conditions i live in qld also haven't had any issues with them.

As for wet weather there not the best and not the worst it is like any bike just be smart at how you ride no white line's etc

Those would be the tires that came stock on my 2012 Blade that I told you only returned 1250 miles. I cannot recommend these since they sucked in the wet and the mileage return was very poor. I ran factory recommended pressure with them.

They are decent tires. The rear wears quickly if you push them. MAX psi for the front is 36 lbs. if your not riding 2 up; 38 in the rear is plenty for hwy use.

I don't have any choice I am afraid, they come with the delivery of the new bike..

I will definitely look into the 55 next time though, are they a lower profile...??

What are the differences and benifits?
