New to semi-adventure riding.
I need 50/50 tires for gravel on standard wheels 19 front, 17 back. I see four options: 804/805 Shinko
Mitas E07
Mitas E07+
Bridgestone AX41
... however there is a problem with the front 19 wheel. My dealer is telling me to get 18 since there is no 19 in the catalog (?). Any suggestions? Should I put different one on the front wheel? Cheaper one in the back?  (Im in BC, Canada).

Hi & Welcome  :152:

Change your dealer - how the feck do they expect an 18" tyre to fit on a 19" rim?

Heindau K60 Scout would be my choice . . . but I aint you.

+1 to this, your dealer is a complete MORON...
I often think of Tyre Fitters are being towards the bottom of the food chain...

Some of them definitely aren't the sharpest tools in the box. I had the wheels on my 1300 powder coated. Took them along to have tyres fitted, this monkey pulls the tyre lever out of the holder, throws and spins it in the air right above my nice shiny wheel  :005:
Luckily he didn't drop it but why do such a stupid thing  :023:

Sorry... I need to ask again.
It's funny that the dealerships cannot help me, even if I would like to buy a new bike and change tires to 50/50 (??).

Please let me know if you know any tire place in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Regarding: TIRES for 2019 CB500X motorcycle, standard wheels.

I am looking for tires recommendations for 50/50 tires.

Can you suggest tires for on-road/off road (50/50) for the standard wheels? and for on-road wet climate in British Columbia, Canada?

The ones Honda advertises are the Bridgestone AX41.
Would you suggest the Mitas 07+Dakar?
... or mix AX41 in front; and Mitas 07+Dakar rear? (with sizes).

How much do you pay for installation? I need them for the next season, 2021.

Thank you (I'm new to bikes)
Why it so easy with cars?

TKC80s work well for half trail half road. Short life span, but thats the cost of doing business. There are more threads about this than the count on expensive bedsheets.

I am on the west wet coast so we have some rain here.

From looks like TKC80 and Bridgestone AX41 are somewhere in the same class. Since Honda is pushing the AX41 let me try them maybe first.
How much you pay for installation and balance normally?
