I've never tried Maxxis but they seem reasonably priced, hopefully you'll give a good review once fitted.

I've always used 'Maxxis' on the several sports bikes I've owned in past and I don't think you will be disappointed, however I've never used them on a cruiser.

My mate Steve has used Maxxis tyres on his Blade & his Hornets (600 & 900), and has always been pleased with them as the seem to offer good value for money, with decent grip and predictable secure handling.

That said there are more expensive tyres that will outperform them, and possibly outlast them, but we often debated this & concluded that unless you ride regularly in poor weather conditions, and that you don't ride like a quasi-road racer, then pound for pound, mile for mile, the Maxxis tyres are a competitive alternatives to 'big brands'.

Hope that might help. Maxxis Tyres 3005623951 Yam

Put a rear on my 883 just before I sold it to save money. Performed  like the original Harley Dunlop and cheap as chips. I'd certainly buy again if I have a similar bike.

I am not sure about that tyre but many people say you can fit tubes in tubeless tyres but don't believe them. Reason being is that tubless tyres will have slightly different edges on the rims and are often ribbed inside, that causes chaffing on the innertube, so it isn't reccomended

I have Tubes in my Tubeless White Walls, Like Crash says they do have a rougher inside, but not to a point you'll have any trouble, just use plenty of chalk on the tube  Maxxis Tyres 3498837457

Hey all, Haven't fitted them yet. For some reason I can not for the life of me find someone to fit them locally. Got quoted £20 a wheel and looks like I may have to do it.

Same as above. Tubeless tyres but gonna stick a new tube in. Anyone got any suggestions on brand?

UPDATE. 

Had a ride on these today, albeit a short one, but was very impressed. Stuck like Glue to the road. Highly recommended, so far.

What an ace looking bike, one to be proud of for sure. Tyre's look really cool  Maxxis Tyres 102087026 Maxxis Tyres 276246

As Pete says, move that bag. The suspension goes up and down just below that point, When Mr I had a screen on his bike,  he somehow had the tool roll on top of the headlight. not sure how tho

Too late. lol. The previous owner had the bag down there. Knocked the paint off with the buckles so its now there to hide that. I hate it down being down there as well but until I can afford a new front fender it'll have to stay. Also I have the Amp for the speakers in it :)
