What type of tires do some of you use? Brand and size? I need to get a new front tire bad ASAP! and having issues finding one.

What kind and size of rear tire do you have? The 110/90-16 front and 130/90-16 rear Lasertecs and Demons are the suggested fitment by Metzeler and Pirelli for the pre 94 EX500 and would be a hard choice to beat.

There are many 100/90-16 and 110/90-16 front tires you could use. The pre 94 EX500 came with 100/80 front and 130/80 rears except the first couple years when the rear was 120/80.

The new Avon Roadrider might be a good choice for a less costly tire than the Lasertecs and Demons.

I'm running Lasertecs - they seem fine. I got 6000 miles out of the rear and the front looks like it will go about twice that.
