Default Rear tire

Bridgestone rear 210... think she is due soon? Is it 240 time?

Hard to tell on these tires.. the tread wears out directly in the middle, that spot was the lowest one on the whole tire.

Once the 240 is on you won't turn back. It's one of the best upgrades IMO.

I won't ever tell someone what to do with 1 of 2 tires to save their life. If it were me, even that one spot would be concerning because it's worn. Every tire has a wear pattern and all it takes is one weak point to cause a blowout.

My rear tire went the same way. I thought I'd just finish the summer on it. Next thing I knew the cords in the tire became visible. It happened fast.

Just bought my bike and the stock tires had 10K miles on them and were close to wear bars. I read about how good (both ride and style) the 240 was so went that route. Only thing I had to do was put a couple of washers on the belt guard so it wouldn't rub the tire. Awesome looks and rides great.
