    What kind of shape? Race take-offs? Street legal? DOT? And are you sure 120/60? Standard sized for sportbike is 120/70

    DOT means department of transportation. Essentially meaning it has tread and is legal for highway use, although it is still a racing rubber compound so the tire might last 1,000 miles In street use. What bike is it that the fender gets in the way when using a 70 series tire vs 60? The older R6 is the only one that comes to mind.

    Where are you located? I have about 5 sets of used tires and some of them are DOT's Dunlop, Q2's if I'm not wrong.
    I also have some slicks take-off and IT'S ALL FOR FREE.
    I'm in Houston at the Heights.

    Ok, I just mounted the rear tire Ryan. Wasnt any problem, the only thing is because its a '60 tall(55 original) the tire is touching the rear fender. Not much though I can deal with it.
