If I am reading correctly, I believe you are asking should they be the same brand of tire front/rear. I generally try to keep my tires as matched sets (same brand and tread pattern). To my understanding, most motorcycle tires are designed to complement each other on handling when matched. This is a pain when one tire still has life left on it, but the other needs replacing. Just think of it as having a "spare" should something happen to one of your new tires and you can't afford to replace it immediately.

Front and rear tires are different. Check your owners manual for the correct tire sizes.

What tires do you recamend for replacement on a 04 electra glide classic

Personally, I'd replace the tires with whatever came stock on the bike. This includes the size and brand of the tire. The bike was designed to handle best with the tires that came on it. However, if you wish to go to a different brand, just make sure you get their recommendation of the proper tire for your bike in order to maintain the handling qualities of the machine.

Good Luck

What type of bike tires are they?

There are lots of different wheel sizes on bikes today (20", 24", 26", 700c, etc.), and lot of different tire widths for all those different wheel sizes. Fortunately, tires are marked with their size, so you just need to learn how to read those markings, and they are not complicated.

For the purpose of picking a replacement tube, there are just two numbers you need to know: tire diameter and tire width. These numbers are always written somewhere on the side of each tire. (Sometimes when tires get old the numbers are hard to see. Don't give up, just keep looking.) Here are some examples of what the numbers might say: 26×1.95, 700c x 25. Sometimes the there will be three numbers, something like this: 26×1-1/2×1-3/4. Don't worry about that, just remember the first number (26 in this example), and the larger of the other numbers (1-3/4 in this case). Sometimes there will be letters with the size (such as EA3 or S-6). Sometimes there will be another number or two in parentheses, for example (622) or (559-45). Don't worry about those letters and numbers. They are important for getting a replacement tire that fits, but not important for replacing the tube.

The numbers can be hard to remember. It's a good strategy to write them down somewhere to bring with you.

Wil putting two size tires on a isuzuvehicross make the transferre case go out.

The tire sizes are important on any 4X4 vehicle... IF you engage the 4X4 ... or is you have an AWD vehicle...

If the tires are different sizes , front and rear... then the front and rear axles will turn at different speeds... not in sync with the gearing of the transfer case.

Unless this vehicle is being driven on snow , ice or mud.... while in 4x4 mode... this is very bad.... for axles and transfer case...

Denali GMC 700C Women's road bike wrong tires!!!

Can you explain why you think the tires are too big? Do they NOT fit the rims? What condition was this bike in when you bought it? If the brake pads line up with the rims then the wheels are correctly sized for the frame.

I need to replace 2 of the tires on my leased Yukon Denali. Does GMC care (for turn-in purposes) if the 2 on the front are a different brand than the 2 on the back, as long as they are all the right size,...

It is recommended though that your new tires, have a similar tread pattern and similar rubber compound as the tires you already have. Tires of different tread patterns and different compounds will act differently (corner, braking, wet traction, etc)

Question about new tires

If they are in deed good tires and correct size keep them. Only suggestion is to keep the two same brand/tread tires on the same axle front or back. Never mix tire sizes or tread on same axle. This could affect braking and traction on wet roads espically.

My 2003 tiburon pulls to the right, i have had the tires rotated and the alignment done and it still pulls.

First of all, are all the tires the same size and are they all inflated to the same pressure? If you have two different size tires (or different tires on the front, i.e. manufacturer and tread mismatch) can cause this problem. Also, what did the alignment measurements indicate? Was there a difference in the CAMBER measurements between Left & Right? This can also cause pulling. Additionally, if the front tires have been worn UNEVENLY (meaning they have become CAMBERED), this will also cause 'pulling.' Solution: VERIFY front alignment is within specifications and correct any deviation in THRUST ALIGNMENT. Replace both front tires with SAME size and specs inflated equally.

Auto 4 wd on 2003 trailblazier is not cutting off.

Hi there... The different size is tires could be causing you problem. The other thing is that if you are using your 4x4 with the two different sized tires, you are causing more damage than you think. The reason is that with two different sized tires, your axles are rotating at different speeds. This is ok in 2wd becuse there is no power transfer to the fronts but once you engage the 4wd, now you have power to the fronts and rears and could damage the differentials.

1996 jeep grand cherokee ltd problem with transfer case because of different size tires

You should have the same size tires in the front and back. By having 2 different sizes, you are changing the gear ratios between the front diff. and rear diff. You could wipe out the t-case especially if it is full time 4wd.
