    bought a new ultra and just read the info on dunlop tires going flat. replaced the dunlops w/ metzlers on the old r/k. does anyone make a replacement that is the same size as the new dunlops that won't affect the abs on the new bikes? where can i find a spec sheet for other manuf. tires that will get me close to the oem tires. there doesn't seem to be anything close out there w/o replacing wheel sizes to get to the proper height. thanks.

    thanks. i was looking at the page here about the lawsuits on dunlops going flat. metzlers seemed to give a better ride but then all new tires do give a better ride right away. had 16k on the dunlops, have 16k + on the metzlers and still looking good. just wait and see what i get out of these.
