e94racer back to the WW question. For me, they don't handle any better , gas mileage is the same , and blackwalls are cheaper , black for me. I'm not a ww fan, anyway.

beezer If nothing rubs and the tire pressures are right it will work fine.

you will detect handling difference when you wreck, auto tires aren't made for bike riding the sidewalls don't hold up so its been nice knowing you.

xjfish I'm liking the new Shinko 777 WWs thus far. They are broken in and working well... Not too dirty yet. I initially just cleaned them with a HD de-greaser.

Sorry, but there are a few vehicles that just look right with white walls. Very classy and classic. (see below) Car white walls are harder and harder to find. I'm less enamored with white walls on motorcycles. I wish there were some thin white wall choices, as opposed to the big, wide suckers. I might buy a set if they did make them.

i rode over 10k miles with a car tire and never wrecked.actually the car tire saved me from wrecking once from a idiot pulling out in front of me.talk about some serious stopping power.thats the only way i prefer to ride is with a car tire.

Those Magic Erasers are...nothing short of amazing. They work on much more than kitchen counter tops. Tlparent take note of WayCoolDaddyo's tip here for long lasting cosmetic value and enjoy!!
