As a V-twin cruiser with a 15-inch wheel or rim, the Honda Shadow Spirit 750 can use a larger-than-factory-specified tire, sized 170/80-15, so long as the tire fits the wheel or rim.
Specific data help properly determine the biggest tire to fit your Honda. For instance, the 2010 Honda Shadow RS has wheels an inch larger than the 2009 Shadow Spirit, though both have the same engine size. The rear tire size on the 2010 is 150/80-16, while the 2009 takes a 160/80-15.
Entering the motorcycle wheel/tire information into a fitment chart at a bike repair shop or motorcycle tire dealer will yield the proper sized tire.
Whether your motorcycle uses radial or bias tires, with or without tubes, ideally both tires should have the same basic construction. Replacing the front tire at the same time as the rear has its advantages, but either way, tire retailers and manufacturers recommend weekly inspections using a tire gauge for maximum safety.
