tires are like shoes. Use them every day they wear faster. Every other day for some reason makes them last much longer.

My tourmaster 230 was smooth riding and grippy throughout its short life. I returned from a 2,000 mile trip to find the tire down to the wear strips. We where travelling ~70-80mph, loaded, two-up, pulling a light trailer. The first 1000 miles of the tires life was mostly around town and it was wearing well. The 2,000 mile trip was mostly in 60F - 70F temperatures. Had we ridden though some hot days we likely would have had to buy a new tire on the road.

In my opinion this tire works well if you can keep the heat out of it but it is not a touring tire.

Loaded two up was probably past recommended load limits. It's easy enough to exceed just filling the bags and trunk. Just the rear tire had worn out?

+1 also if tire pressure was too low for the load that would accelerate wear. My first 230 on the Rats Nest delivered 6k miles and 4.2k miles of those was done in 6.5 days going LA to Sturgis and back through as many twisties as possible :yes:

Tires where run at max pressures. The matching front shinko is a dual compound as in the mountains you could see a distinct step from the hard centre ridge to the soft sides. The return trip across the prairies wore the centre to even out the tire again. I ordered a Michelin Commander for the rear, the front looks ok for now, maybe just past halfway worn.

I agree, the rear carcass is too soft for a full load.

Can't recall offhand. It's on a sticker of my 83 swingarm. I believe 32 front/40 rear. Probably should have looked at the max rating on the tire though :oops:

I don't run any less than 42 psi in the rear and 36 psi in the front. If I have extra load I start increasing the rear up around 46+

Great. Decided that maybe I should change the front as well but Michelin only makes the Commander in a 110/90-18 instead of the recommended 120/90-18. Thoughts?

That's only slightly narrower I think. Your call.

The Rats Nest is currently running a 110/90 x19 front and did come with an 18" front which Steve kindly swapped for his 80 Gl1100 front as I had already ordered a 19 front instead of an 18.

I put a set of 230's on my 86 Interstate last spring. 10,000 kilometres on them so far and they still look good. I run 40 psi in front and rear. I ride approximately 60 kilometres ( 40 miles) each way to work every day that I can. They are great in the rain and give a very smooth ride. When I first put them on they did feel a bit greased but that went away once they wore in. My new to me 86 Aspencade came with an almost new set of E-3's so once I am done doing the alt conversion I will be able to see how they feel.

I think these tires are extremely sensitive to heat. They have a soft compound and are marginal in load rating for the Goldwing. If you ride lightly loaded for short distances they would be ideal because they are soft compound, soft carcass, and inexpensive. They give a smooth ride and stick well when cool. These tires seem to wear quickly if you are heavily loaded and are putting a lot of heat into the tire with long distance high speed cruising, worse on hot pavement.

The commanders I'm running now are a much stiffer rougher riding tire and don't offer the same grip when cold but also don't get greasy and wear quickly when hot like the 230's.

I have a smaller bike for around town and use the wing primarily for two up highway trips and vacations so the Shinko is not a good choice for me.
