Anyone have a decent 180 tire sitting around?

Toasted a rear tire in the past week and don't wanna put a new one on just yet since the front only has 2,000 or so miles left in it. Just looking for something to get me by for a month or two until I buy a full set.

Anyone?

I do in fact have a T30 I just pulled off the Blackbird. It's down to the indicators in a couple spots but could probably go another 1,000 or more. Not sure I'd really call it decent but if you find nothing better you are welcome to it.

I'm in the wear bars on mine too.

Looking for something with a little more meat on it.

Willing to buy one for the going rate of a used MC tire.

I normally have a couple 170 and/or 180 spares stashed away for a rainy day, but since my Trophy is grounded and I have no other bikes that use the fat rubber, I pitched all that I had late last season. I just double-checked my workshop to be sure. I do have a 160 width Pirelli MT60R that I used for my "Snow" tires on my Trophy for a couple Winters. It's more of an 80/20 Dual-Sport tire that performed quite well on pavement. Despite the Trophy having a 5.5" rear rim, the factory mounted a 170 tire on it. I often ran 180's on it, but had zero issues with this 160. You're welcome to it if you want it. It's probably at 50%.

I've got a Dunlop Q2 in the 180/55/17 size that still has some good tread

You're welcome to it, but I'm leaving town in the morning real early and won't be back for over a week. PM me tonight if you want it.

That might just work. I can wait until ya get back. As long as it's dry I can ride on mine still. It's just getting a little squirrely.

TTT - Putting a 160 on seems sketchy. I put a 110/150 set on my Supermoto (supposed to be 120/160) once and it handled like a death trap. Thanks for the offer though.
