    I run and tested 4 different classic tires on my rigid frame Panheads.
    AVON MK2, Continental K112, AllState and Coker/Beck style thread.
    I can say, never use the Coker/Beck style tire. They are dangerous for your life. They are very slippery on wet roads - You cannot stop!
    AVON MK2 are a good choice, but the Continental K112 I feel is better on uneven roads and has grip on dry or wet roads.
    Also very good is the AllState Tire 5.00-16. Made in Japan and the most expensiv of all.

    I have put Shinko 270ís on lots of pans and shovels. They are a replica Goodyear supereagle pattern which was used by Harley Davidson till 1968. Have not had any problems and run them on my own bikes

    Shinko 240ís are the speed grip pattern used by harley-Davidson after 1968. They can be a little squirrely on grooved pavement and iron grate bridges I prefer the 270 supereagle pattern. They are a little taller profile. They look good and wear well
