    After must researching and deliberation I've decided to replace the worn Metzeler Marathon rear tyre on my C109R with a car tyre. I've chosen the SS595 Federal 245/50R16 98V. It's getting fitted on November 18th and I'll give feedback once I've bedded it in. If you've had or do have on your Boulevard a car tyre I'd like to hear your impressions, pros and cons or just any differences you've noticed. More to follow...

    Check your insurance for car tyre fitting.
