I've been reading this forums for what feels like days..

People change their minds so frequently

For the 76' cb200t tire size my shop manual says;

2.75" 18
3.00" 18

Is equivalent to ...?
90/90 18
100/90 18?

Would it be the same as to order two 90/90 18 FRONT tires? and mount one to the rear?

About all I can find on the websites that would actually be ride-able on

I don't really care about 'vintage correct'

I want a tire I know I can depend on in every day conditions, and in the wet.

Easy way to convert Inch tire sizes to metric is multiply by 26. IE 3.00 = 78 2.75 =71.5 or you can use this chart Tire Size Conversions|
So correct sizing would be like an 80/80/18 or 80/90/18 rear and a 70/80/18 front.

Hey thank you so much for that information.

It's that I don't really understand inches not that I don't understand the metric system Hahaha!

I'm in america currently

The only thing with my bias on those tires is that there is no review on them at all, where the others i mentioned have good reviews from the website. and the persons on this forum.

What do you think, should I just pick them up anyway, the two of them cost the same as about 1 of the tires I mentioned previously so that's not too bad either hahaha.
