|Dunlop roadsmart motorcycle tire size 120/90zr-18. tire was installed nov, 2009. tire had been on motorcycle for 8200 miles at time of failure. i was on interstate 77 in north carolina when front tire felt out of balance. upon inspection i found a tennis ball size bump in the center of the tire. riding slowly, i managed to make it to a motorcycle dealer about 20 miles away. after removing the tire, they showed me it had a blister on the inside of the tire about 12 inches long i don't think i could have made it more that a few miles farther on the tire. i was about 350 miles from home when this happened. the tire was left at the dealer in wilksboro, nc.|
