closest tire to factory size, with highest ratings and favorable experience with Avon tires. would have tried Pirelli Night dragons but they did not offer a close enough tire size.
J E on Aug 10, 2020
I have very limited options if purchasing OM-recommended tire sizes ('06 Yam Roadliner 1900cc). The Avon Cobra Chromes are new to me but I've run on Avon Chromes. The ride is much nicer than Bridgestones. Leaning is almost effortless and make you LOOK for curves, the response is so nice.

John C on Jul 16, 2019
Always loved the Avon Product. <br />I've ran the Venom's on a number of bikes and the grip & performance has always been reliable in all types of road conditions. <br />Chose the Chromes to hopefully get better life limits out of a set and still have the dependable feel that you get from the Avon tire brand

It is the best front tire for a rocket III.
J O on Jun 29, 2019
My daughter tried these and liked them so much she also replaced her rear tire too. Have heard many positive comments about them. I like the softness for gripping and the water tread. Don't plan on riding in rain but get caught occasionally.
Kevin S on Jun 27, 2019
I have run Bridgestone Exedra G850 and Avon Cobra tires for the last ten years. I think the Avon edges out the Bridgeston in mileage. But, I have no data to back up that statement. I hope the Avon Cobra Chrome is as good as the info I have seen on the internet.

Will the Avon A91/92 fit on spoked rim with tube ?
dennis S on May 9, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for the question! Yes! this will work. You can put a tube in a tubeless type tire.
Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll-free at 1-888-339-3888. We are always more than happy to help.
Can these tires be used with tubes? I have a '14 XL1200V and since both rims are spoked it requires a tube. I want to make sure these will work.
Ryan N on May 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Ryan, thank you for the question. Make sure your wheel is marked as a MT-Type Rim. If it is, you will be able to run a tube no problem. If it is marked as a WM-type rim you can only fit tubed tyres. If the inside of the tyre is ribbed, that can chafe against the tube, generating heat and wear. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll-free at 1-888-339-3888. We are always more than happy to help.
I’m wondering if these tires would work on my 2005 Ridley Autoglide 130/90-16 rim size 130?
Angela L on Dec 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Angela, thanks for the question! Tire size MT90-16 is also available for the Cobra Chrome Tire but, yes, as long as you have clearance, size 130/90-16 should fit your bike. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you by contacting us by email at [email protected], Live Chat or by phone toll-free at 1-888-339-3888.
