    OK so it is time for me to pull the trigger on some new rubber and ditching the old Dunlops I have narrowed it down to the Pirelli night dragon's or the Avon cobras
    I would love to hear from any members that have experience with either of these two tires my main concern is how we will handle in the wet it does not rain much here but I am a new a rider and need all the safety I can get.
    I ride a 2006 vegas premium
    I've been told rear rim is 5 1/2 wide
    But all specs I've found say 5
    Thanks in advance

    both tires stick like glue. Avon wears like cotton candy

    Guess you'd have to think about how you ride. Myself I'm a little aggressive, not like SQUATCH, but close and admit it. I personally like safe tires when I'm riding...fast...on curves...tar snakes....wet road...fast. NOT that I'm rich, but those are important to me. I like AVON...not particularly worried about mileage, for the above reasons. It's kinda like having KEVINX massaging my motors and then worrying about gas mileage. Just IMHO

    I have used both the Avons and Pirellis on my Vegas and Jackpot. Flip a coin. I liked them both. Can't say how long they last but they do hold the road very well. (I have a set of Avons that I'm about to install on my Cross Roads.)

    I have figured I can't go wrong with either they are VERY comparable don't care about mileage over performance (started by looking at power commander 2 & 888's) gonna prob go with the pirelli cuz I found them for a better price but I appreciate everyone's input!! Keep you posted

    I'm wondering if anyone has compared E4s and either Perelli Night Dragons or Avon Cobras? Gonna change my back tire in about 1k miles... I find they all start to get Squirrley at around 8k...even though I could go to about 11k. I'd rather have the superior grip than longevity!
