    Tire front and rear difference

    Hey guys so I'm ready for new tires and I'm noticing its a lil more difficult with vintage tires. Mine are 3.23 19 front and 4.6 18 Rear (100 and 120). I can find some tires that are those sizes but a lot of the 120s say they are for front tires. My question is can I use 2 front tires on my bike? (a front tire on the back) The guy at the shop said he didn't think it was an issue and I know I newer bigger bikes theres a big difference but these older tires and pretty close to the same front and back. thanks!

    Get yourself some Bridgestone Spitfires. I have them on my 76 cb750f and my 81 gl1100.
    Dual compound, good in the wet, last a long time.
    You'll thank me.

    The only reason to use vintage tires is if you're just showing the bike and not riding it.

    you can get a set here for less than $200, I didn't do an exhaustive search, you may find a better deal.

    I put Dunlop K70s on my 75 cb750. I like them a lot.

    Not mounted yet, so they look thinner.
    Drive fast and take chances
