    Any one know of any Actual V or Z rated 180/55-18 rear tire.

    I've seen a few V and Z but they are actually H rated so I dont understand how they advertise as that.

    Any links of brand module numbers would be helpful thanks all.

    For $100 flat from Offer up brand new.

    They have not made the Cobra since 17 if memory serves? Tire will be atleast 4 yrs old. If you intend to use it up this year, just know braking will be marginal especially when it's cold.

    Have you ever pulled an brand new old pencil out of a drawer and tried to use it? Doesn't work so well...
