    Overall Tire/Tyre Review

    The Avon Cobra provides great handling, low noise, good wet weather traction. Mileage varies between 10,000-20,000 miles. The front tire is rated quite a bit higher than the rear. In fact, the front Avon Cobra is rated near the top of the cruiser tire group. The Avon Cobra seems to work well on larger bikes, so if you ride a heavier bike then the Avon Cobra might be worth a try.

    38 reviews. 4.3 of 5 stars. One rider says the handling was incredible, totally changed the performance of the cruiser, handles like a sportbike now in the turns, flicks side to side very easily. On a Rocket III – have 20,000 miles on rear, grip real well on dry pavement but a little squirrelly in wet weather. On a Yamaha Raider S – have over 9,000 miles and still going, tires have worn great all the way to the edges. On Victory Hammer – switched from Metzeler to Avon, great in wet weather, drag race with the tires as well.

    15 reviews. 4.7 of 5 stars. On a Honda VTX 1800 – great handling, low noise, good wet weather traction. On a Harley FXSTC – rides much smoother and handles much better than OEM bias ply, got 50% mileage improvement over OEM. ON a 2003 and 2009 V-rods – 10,000 miles on Texas Hill Country roads. On a VTX 1800C – Avon handles the best, Venoms worn out at 6,500 miles, Dunlops at 8,500 miles, Cobra’s still look good at 10,000 miles, recommend for anyone with heavy bike. On a 1998 Valkyrie – Avon Cobra considerably smoother even at higher temps than Dunlop E3 or Metzeler 880, dry cornering just as good if not better than Metzeler.
