I'm looking to order new tires, and I know the front is a 100/90/19, but what is the rear? Also, do you guys run different size tires besides stock?



Thanks!

ok i think all the cx500c ran the same rear tire which should be the 130-90-16 i am not to sure about the deluxe though i do know that the 120 has its pros and cons one like you will notice the size difference in the turns and your rpms might increase a c hair but other than that it sounds like a good deal



oh by the way i have a 82 cx500c

Yeah the guy from bikebandit was able to look the rear up for me, and he said the front was a 110/90/19, but I recall mine being a 100/90/19.. not sure though.



Thanks again!

If you wanna pay for shipping, they're yours. Or if you live locally you can have them for free




Edit: I used to work for fedex, so I get cheap shipping...



Double Edit: just saw AZ.. so nevermind on the locality
