View Full Version : Tire Question - 2010 Blast

06-06-2012, 07:53 PM
Hey everyone,

New Blast owner here - picking it up weekend after next. It a dead stock 2010 model with only 363 mi. showing on the odometer. Since it's been sitting for a while I want to replace the tires and I'm wondering if there's any clearance problems with the Avon AM26 Roadrider in 100/90-16 for the front:

Avon AM26 Front (http://www.compacc.com/p/Avon-AM26-RoadRider-Tires-V-Rated-Front/1702003)

and 120/80-16 in the back:

Avon AM26 Rear (http://www.compacc.com/p/Avon-AM26-RoadRider-Tires-V-Rated-Rear/6701)

Will the front tire, being a 100/90 instead of a 100/80 cause any difference in handling?

Does anyone have any direct experience with these tires as far as mileage and handling/traction compared with the stock Pirelli MT75's?

Is there a better tire anyone would recommend? I live in the L.A area so most of the riding would be in places like Angeles Crest, Malibu mountains, Azusa Canyon, etc.

Thanks for any help.
