    I have an all original XS360 and I need some help finding tires. If anybody could give me a link, that would be great. Any and all tire types are cool. Thanks!

    Any bike shop should have tires. I get all mine from the local Yamaha dealer. 90/90-18 front and 110/90-18 rear. If you have old tubes it would be a good idea to replace those and always replace rim bands. Also if you have never had the wheels trued it would be good to have that done.

    I mount and balance tires myself. Save a bit of cash that way.
    I buy my tires online. Ebay usually. I usually know what brand and model of tire I want. I then put that and the tire size I want in the search engine.
    A long list comes up. There is a pull down box where you can choose how you want items listed. Click the cheapest with shipping.
    Now they are listed cheapest first. You want to skip over the used tires. Then check the first one you come to. You may even find them in sets, both a front and rear for a cheaper price.
    You may find the tires you want several sellers list them, Some ask as much as if buying local. Others much less.
    If I have the rear tire on my Harley done at the shop, as in ride the bike up have it done and they charge almost $300.
    I can buy the same tire for $125 online, tube around $15.
    I have always gotten good tires this way. Seldom over a few months old.
    I get tubes and rim strips the same way.
    Often the rim strips are ok. Mostly want to replace if torn or hole worn through.
    Sometimes I reuse a tube. Depends if I feel too cheap. Usually I pinch or tear them getting the tire off.
    I try to keep an extra tube in the sizes I need on hand. Never can tell when you will pinch one mounting a tire.

    Costs me about $120 for rear wheel mount and balanced. About $100 for the front. Extra $20 for tube and band. I always bring them just the wheel. Those are new kenda tires. I think they charged me $40 to true a wheel but it's been a while. Usually I only do it once when I first get the bike so I know they are good. I used to do my own wheels but I would rather just drop it off and pick it up the next day. I also like having a warranty on everything. If I mess it up or it comes in from an on-line sale messed up I wont have to deal with it.

    I think those tyre sizes are for wire wheels, I have a larger profile on the front on cast wheels, 90/100 18

    Front wheel for cast and spoke where/are the same. 90/90-18 or 3.00-18 I have both type wheels with same size tires. These are stock sizes from factory.

    That explains why there’s not much clearance between tyre and mud guard. I have a 3.50 x 18 on the front. Hope it rides ok, not started yet.
