    I am putting a 21" wheel on my Roadking. Just wondering what you guys that have them are running for a tire. I would like a white wall.

    Thanks

    I run a 21" Dunlop 408 on my softail custom, third time around and I'm pleased with the performance, about 12-13K on each.

    I run the Avon Cobra 21 blackwall and love it. Traction including when wet out is outstanding and they are available as a white wall as well. Vee Rubber is another off brand that makes a 21WW that I know of as well as Metzler. There may be others out there, but my preference is the Avon.

    I love Avon Cobra tyres. Just bought my second set. They stick to the road much better than the original Dunlops, in my opinion.

    Avon rubber works for me as it seems to work fairly well in the wet and it is often wet here
