TKC-70
« on: March 19, 2017, 09:54:30 PM »
I have read several reports of front wheel wobble with the TKC-70 tires. Has anyone experienced this with the XCX?

Thanks.

There has been posts on the S10 forum about the front TKC70. Not sure if it's the same issue.

It's been a  week with no replies, so I ordered a set. I'll post if I have a problem.

Most of the reports I've seen have been on the GS.

I'm running TKC70s on my '11 Roadie. No wobble or whatever. Great in the rain and much improved traction in dirt and gravel compared to the stock tires. I think you'll like em.

Good to hear. Do you have an XC?

Yep, the TKC70's give my footpegs a rough life..!
Good in the wet, great in the dry.
Must say that the front tire is cupping, 8.000 km's old. And the front is a bit noisier at low speed. Also you can feel the knobbed profile working a bit better at low speeds.
But for me, these are no issues.

Good dry and wet grip and capable of doing off roading is what counts!

Cheers,

Dennis

Just completed a 1700 mile trip, probably 500 miles on 2 lane mountain twisties  and 800 miles on interstate. Tires performed flawlessly, no wobble or bad behavior, wonderful grip in the twisties. I am thoroughly happy with them.

If the front is a cross ply that is quite common particularly when the tyre is cold. Its to do with the construction rather than the actual tyre.
