Wanted - a lead on 16" Michelins for a 90 Sport

Post by manitoufs » Sun Apr 04, 2004 5:59 am

M59X M59X
Front 130/60 ZR 16 (58 W) TL
Rear 160/60 ZR 16 (68 W) TL
Michelin keeps putting off the production of these tires and I have not started adapting the CBR600 rims I bought for this bike.

If anyone has a lead on where I could find a set, I would be most appreciative. I have tried all of the major internet retailers and have been in communication with Michelin - USA.

I think Michelin started production of those tires again. If not there are some Paso owners that are switching to Metzlers.
See the discussion here:

I have a set of these that I bought prior to the '06 season. If I put 100 miles on them, that would be an exaggeration. They still have the knobbies (those little dangling stringy things) on them.

Let me know if interested.

Hi, I had a 1989 750 Sport in Australia and found out when buying these tyres that Michelin France has started manufacturing these tyres again. Gowanloch's in Sydney Australia ALWAYS had front and rear in stock..
