    Great performance tire
    This tire has great traction in all weather and corners like a dream. Out of all the tires i have used on my bikes this is the best performing tire. The only downside to the tire is that you only get about 6000-8000 mile out of them on a bagger. Well worth the price because performance is awesome.

    Avon tires have always treated me well
    I have rode for over 40 years and have tried many tire brands. I have always got my best mileage from Avon. instead of 5 thousand from other brands, I have gotten as many as 8 thousand from Avon. I would recommend you give them a try.

    Milage on Avon Cobra AV72
    I used this tire on 2008 Yamaha Stratoliner and was very disappointed that this tire lasted only 6,500 miles.
    I was able to get:
    12K miles on Dunlop American Elite H-D
    10K miles on Michelin Commander II
    (Note: Bridgestone Exedra Max lasted only 6.5K miles - same as Avon)

    Will always be my first choice in motorcycle tires
    Tires are awesome, cant say enough about how great they are. Completely changes the bike when you put these on. I cant really say too much about mileage as the last bike I put them on I traded for the current one it was an 07 VRSCD and I put over 3500 miles on them and they still looked great.

    very low mileage only 3K
    I have road this bike 105K in same area of the US and this was the worse tire I have ever bought

    front tire seems to hold up longer but ends at 7K you give up some for a soft tire but not that much

    Best handling tire
    I have tried different rear tires but none compare to avons for handling twisted roads, wet or dry. Wish I could get more miles but that's the trade off for good traction I quess. Tried the E4s and got less miles and didn't handle as good. I would recommend this tire especially for aggressive riders.

    Will this tire fit a 18x5 wheel ?
    A shopper on Aug 27, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, a size like the 150/70B-18 would be suitable to fit on that size wheel.
    How do I know if I need to replace my tire?
    It has a fair amount of flat in the center and is only 1-1/2 years old... It also has rough almost cupping uneven through the whole center sides.
    Please contact me
    I can send pics if needed
    Jennifer B on Jul 14, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: Pretty much everything you mentioned is a signal to get a new tire. The "flat" center says your wear bars are gone. there is a cheap tool to measure tread depth. The cupping/feathering from inflation issues will have a negative effect on handling. How many miles you get on a tire is affected by so much starting with your wrist. As a cheap plug, you'd be hard pressed to beat RM on tire prices or service.
    Is the Avon Cobra AV71 (130-80-B17) & AV72 (180-65-B16) in stock? Is it possible to give a mfg date?
    A shopper on Mar 8, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, both of these size are in stock. As for the manufacture date we have many of these tires in stock and are unable to guarantee an exact date of the tire that is being shipped to you, especially since we have 2 warehouses that these tires would ship from. All the tires we sell are going to be in new condition and they are stored in a controlled environment so that they do not age.
    do you have this tire in wide white wall ?
    A shopper on Jan 28, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, we do. I've attached the link to it below.
