Re: Coker tires

Hi Tim, You'll get as many differant opinions about tires as you would about discussing oil.
I've run Cokers on my pan for the past 8k miles and I don't have any complaints about them. I rarely do any prolonged expressway riding though. If that where the case I would probibly choose a differant brand tire.

Re: Coker tires

Are Coker tires made here? I've had good luck with the old style Avons and Continental tires.

Re: Coker tires

I stock most of the Coker motorcycle tires and there are a few here that have Made in Taiwan on them. The new S-3 is made in the USA.

Re: Coker tires

I take my NOS S 3 tires with the MILITARY brand to my metal polisher. He nicely removes both of them.

I just put a Continental Mille-Mile tire on the front of my e-glide. So far it's a great tire. I hope it continues to impress me for the life of the tire. I've been a hardcore Avon fan for many years. What was amusing about it was the labeling. The literature said "made in the UK" The invoice said "Product of Canada" on the label it said it said "made in Germany", and on the tire it said "made in Korea" Talk about an identity crisis.
