Comments about Kenda K657 Challenger Motorcycle Tire:

I tried these upon suggestion to replace worn tires on a 96 springer that I own. I am at the end of my second set and have only seen a best of about 6 K from each set. I have tried 38-42 psi in the front and both have cupped to the point of replacement by the time the rears have worn out. Both rears had started tearing and losing chunks of tread before they were into wearout. The tires did perform well though until this point, even in rain. I change and balance my own tires but if you factor that cost and downtime in the amount saved won't be as generous. My thinking is to change to a different, higher rated tire and if I do get twice the mileage then I will have saved one change and downtime. In my situation they are an economical short mileage tire.

      Kenda tires are the good stuff, priced well, and best dollar per mile. Customers who use them ask for them again and again, that speaks volumes on its own.

          [...] Best Price I coukd find.I had front and rear tires mounted & balanced by a local Honda Dealer for $110 out the door. The Kenda challengers live up to their rap on cornering & tracking (and good looks). Now I hope I get some miles on these baby's. Ride on!

              Thanks for your question! When your looking at this tire they would be measured in millimeters, the 130 will be the width, the 90 will be the sidewall height and the 16 would be your rim size.
