A: Because of clearance and handling issues we do not recommend running a larger than stock tire.

I have a 2004 Kawasaki Vulcan 500. The specs call for a tube tire with the front at 00/90 R19 and rear at 140/90 R15. Will the Dunlop Elite tires be a good match? The front tire specs for the Elite are fine but the rear Elite is a Mv/85 15 - is this a good fite?
A: Since they do not have the Elite II tires in the correct size for your bike, I would say they probably wont be your best option. If I were to recommend tires, I would look at the Dunlop 404's for a good tire, or for a very high quality tire, look at Metzeler ME880's. The D404s are a good tire for the money. The ME880's will give you one of the highest mileages out of any of the tires as long as you run the correct pressures and they grip great. The ME880s are one of the most popular cruiser tires out there.
