Metzler white walls for the Black?

Iíve looked around and found some Metzlerís that look like they fit for the Black. Is anyone running these? Or others?

How about these, scrambler tyres on a Bobber.

I like the look of those tires . . . . but the Bobber - even with a Fox rear shock - can kick my butt when I am riding on pavement. I'm sure as heck not going to take the Bobber out on rutty dirt roads.

And the scrambler tires aren't whitewalls.

Thanks! I think it is a Bobber Black. I see two disks on the front. Now to find out the brand of the tires.

Avon Cobras are available in whitewall for the Bobber. I'll be making the switch once I wear my current ones out.

I'm not waiting to wear my tires out. (Life is too short.) I'm calling up my Triumph dealer tomorrow. While I'm at it I will get a short front fender installed as well. Woo hoo!!!

Hi Adam,

I've gone back and forth as to wether or not do go this route and have ultimately decided against it. However I'm keen to see photos of anyone's bike who plan to do this. It for sure adds a distinctive and classy touch.

Cheerio,

Roy

I love the look of whitewalls on our bikes, however I've seen some pics where the white stripe is noticeably thinner on the 19" front tire than the 16" rear (for those of us with "regular" Bobbers), and that doesn't appeal to me as much. Not an issue for those of you with both tires the same size.

Each one matters.
