Another great review Rick! I agree totally. I'm running the exact same set up.I'm getting around the same mileage.12-13k with the Centramatic. Installed the centrimatics with less than 1k on my Wing. 37K on it now. TIRE PRESSURE VIGILANCE IS KEY.I check my air before every outing.. Great Job Rick. Nick.

Not sure I go with your 40R 38F pressures. Then again with all that BLING You're running you have a bit more weight. Lmao!

I agree with Rick, Bridgestone's are my tire of choice. I put a new set on ever year. With the exception of one set, I've consistently achieved 12-13K miles with the Centramatics. I check the air press before each ride, but I run them at 36F and 41R.

I just put a set on my Honda Shadow ACE Tourer. The back is the Valk tire,702, 180/70R16, had them on my 08 wing and liked them a lot. Since the Shadow ACE tourer is a touring bike with bags and a windshield I think these will work great,

My 2012 was shipped with Bridgestone OEM. I had no issues and figured it must be a good pair being OEM. The price point for a replacement pair from Wingstuff was a no brainer so I stay with them. I use the ceramic beads for balancing on the last tire change and I am pleased with the handling and mileage. I stay with 36F and 40R as suggested on frame. I can feel it in the handling when pressure falls low. I may use this configuration on my '99 Valkyrie as well.
