Question about Harley Davidson FLSTC - FLSTCI Heritage Classic Motorcycles
When I bought my 2005 Softail I won a brand new stock Dunlop rear tire. I have almost 10,000 miles on the bike and wonder if the tire (new in 2005) and stored vertically indoors is safe to install. It is designed to go on the rear,D401 HD 150/80 B16 71 H
The British Rubber Manufacturers Association (BRMA) recommended
practice issued June, 2001, states "BRMA members strongly recommend
that unused tyres should not be put into service if they are over six
years old and that all tyres should be replaced ten years from the date
of their manufacture."
I think this is a good rule to follow. Tires degrade over time. If stored indoors you're gonna extend its life. Visually inspect it and if it looks sound, go ahead and use it
