    Hi All,

    Would anyone know if the Heidenau K60 120/90-18 will fit a 2018 T120 front? I have seen them on the T120's online without any modification to the forks but my dealer, whom I had asked to fit the tires, has returned them stating that the tires won't fit.

    Before I return the tire just wanted to check if anyone has managed to fit them fine.

    Thanks.

    Can't speak to the Heidenau's but the Shinko 705 120/90 fits... albeit somewhat tight...which probably helps you not at all. FWIW I run Heidenau's on my Super Tenere' and they're a bit "greasy" when running in the wet. I stick with them mostly owing to their long life for extended trips as well as good traction on dirt and gravel. The Shinko's on the T120 do well in wet/dry conditions but won't last near as long the Heide's.

    Sound cheap and cheerful to me. If your dealer has told you won't fit then I think I would take his advice. Think about it you have two wheels and the roads are shit and contaminated. Fit something decent that will help to keep you safe. And most of all your insurance company will accept as compatible.
    Regards
    Joe.
