WARNING — For your own personal safety, tires and tubes must be correctly matched to wheel rims. Tires and tubes listed below must be used exclusively for replacement. Mismatching tires, tubes and rims may result in damage to the tire bead during mounting or may allow the tire to slip on the rim, damaging the tube, causing rapid tire deflation. In addition, using tires and tubes other than those specified may adversely affect motorcycle stability. Use only tube type tires on all Harley-Davidson cast and laced (wire spoked) wheels. Protective rubber rim strips must be used on laced (wire spoked) wheels.
