good evening, what is the max size tyre I can run on my scout rear?
There's no minimum or maximum,....It's what you decide,.....but there is nothing wrong with the 40 psi that Indian specify,.....
That said I do my pressures slightly different and the method is in a thread on tyres or tyre pressures in here somewhere,....try a search,......
I’ve read about people putting a 180 Avon on the Scout. What people don’t think about is a wider tire not designed for the rim width actually gets pinched and is narrower than the actual listed tire size. It can also add height since it’s pinched.
A wider rear tire doesn’t turn in as good as a narrow tire and can actually hurt handling.
Another late night for Alpal,......who totally missed the question asked,...Geeez
funny man, haha
180 on stock rim and 240 with the kit to do it
You been hitting the sauce again??
Tried that,....didn't work so I've gone back to wine and beer,.....
This is True but I was quite Happy with both a Michelin Commander II and Pirelli Night Dragon in Stock OEM Size on the Rear with the Night Dragon having a Slight Edge in Grip but a bit less Mileage but either is a good choice .. Noy trying to change anyone's mind , don't even have a Scout anymore but both these Tires worked well for me on my 2015 Scout ..
Jay how many more miles would you expect with the commander 2 over the night dragon?
I have the night dragons and think they are pretty amazing for cruiser tires. I would LOVE if Pilot Roads would work but doubt they have the correct size for a Scout.
In my Case was 4,000+ More Miles ( 16,000 + Miles Overall ) could have made 5,000 More at least but changed with a Road trip coming Up .. But most of the Miles were Easy Pavement back roads or well kept Highways in the area I live so just to give a fair estimate would say 2,000-5,000 depending on Roads and How one Rides .. Jack Rabbit Starts and a Lot of Braking can add a lot to making Tire life Shorter as well as the Condition and Texture of the Road .. I was never stationed in Guam but been there a few times and knew a few guys that were that rode, and they very pleased if got 5,000 being a Volcanic Rock Based Island ..
Simply Put If I were based in the heart of good riding Mountain Country I would go with Night Dragons .. In my Case usually have to go at least 350 miles one way to find really good Mountain Roads so in case rather have the mileage unless was time to change Tires just before a Road Trip to Fun Riding which is how I ended up trying the Night Dragons on my Scout ..
Gotcha!!! Thanks for the information!!!
