Vee Rubber 200/70/15

so the Metzler was wearing a lil thin and i couldnt swing for another 275.oo metz, not too keen on the Avon Venom so i found a 3rd option the Vee Rubber 200/70/15 PAID 180 shipped from an ebay vendor , right out of the box with the bald metz still mounted the Vee tire looked wider and quite a bit taller, has a nice tread pattern and DEEP tread grooves , i'll get pics up when i can hunt down my camera , so far i'm love'n this tire meaty as hell , i'll update as it wears

WARNING to those running the Burly slammer shocks for a sporty , you WILL have a rub issue , shocks bottom out and tire hits the fender subframe on hard bumps , i'm going to shim the springs and eventually swap mine out for the slammer dyna shocks this tire is taller and a hair wider than the Metz , i'm LOVE'n this tire


got caught in the rain yesterday , rain traction on this thting is A PLUS
played around a little 1st then cranked it up handles well in the wet @ hiway speeds and higher ,

How are they in wet curves? Looking for maybe a change from Metz myself. The front is will need it soon and I am looking to try a wider than 90/90-21. They seem to have the 200/50-18 for the rear.
