Motorcycle riders are very particular about their tires, as they should be. It is extremely important to maintain adequate tire pressure. Low pressure is the leading cause of tire failure on motorcycles, and a blowout often has serious consequences.

Avon Vemon X
The Avon Venom X tires are made for heavyweight cruiser motorcycles. The company says that the tires produce low noise, are long-lasting and boast excellent cornering stability.
The Avon Venom X tires require a higher tire pressure than most tires. Experienced riders suggest approximately 40 psi in the front tire and 48 psi in the rear. Unless these tires came stock on your motorcycle, do not use the pressure listed in your owner's manual. Always use the tire pressure imprinted on the sidewall of the tire.
Checking Tire Pressure
Riders should perform frequent pre-ride tire pressure checks. If you ride every day, it isn't necessary to check the tire pressure every time you hop on board, but do check the pressure at least once a week.
