Avon AV72 Cobra Rear Tires

The AV72 has a deep tread depth for better mileage in a touring tire. The grooves are tapered for maximum contact patch, also increasing mileage. Available in "White Wall" and standard blackwall, the sidewall of the tire has unique "snakeskin" etching for a singular look. The absence of a center line on the AV72 Cobra decreases negative handling effects on steel-gratings found on bridges. The Avon Cobras combine style and performance for cruisers, customs, and touring bikes, increasing turn-in with a rounder profile.


  • Incorporates sportbike tire technology for nimble handling
  • Special construction to deal with heavy loads
  • Incredible stability and longevity - perfect for touring
  • Unique 'snakeskin-effect' sidewall and aggressive tread pattern
  • Extra wide sizes for custom bikes
  • Ultra-quiet
  • Unique pattern for Honda Goldwing fitment
  • Available in a wide range of sizes, incorporating fitments for Harley Davidson's V-Rod, Triumph's Rocket III, Honda's Goldwing and Valkyrie plus some sizes for custom bike applications
  • Whitewalls available in some sizes indicated by WWW

Please Note: The 130/60VR23 tire is suitable for both front and rear fitment.

Avon AV72 Cobra Rear Tires 4.7 5 12 12
Awesome tire Awesome tire, plenty of tread life and good in the rain November 2, 2015
In my opinion this is the best cruiser/touring tire on the market Excellent traction and handling characteristics. Great wet traction. This is the only tire I would use on a cruiser or my 2012 GoldWing . Tread life is advertised as 15,000 mi. I ride hard and get 12-14,000 mi out of the front and about 8-10,000 mi out back October 26, 2015
Excellent value and service life This is my second set of Avon Cobra tires. I got 16,500 miles from my first set, on a 2008 Softail Springer. The original Dunlops only lasted 6500 miles,( cupped to the point the bike couldn't be ridden anymore), with only the outer tread remaining. These Springers are harder on tires than a cruiser style bike. I wouldn,t use anything else! October 19, 2015
2 up on a Goldwing on the SCMA's 3 Flags Rally The SCMA's (Southern California's Motorcycle Association) 40th annual 3 Flags Tour - run every Labor Day weekend from Mexico to Canada. although the rally only lasted 5 days, wifey and I stayed on the road for 16 days total ( our Wing was loaded with gear!). The tires saw the heat of SoCal at the start, rain, wind, frost and even the deck of some ferries as we made our way north to Canada. Low to no noise, excellent traction and secure tracking even on some construction "roads" up in Canada...ran 41 psi on both front and rear, no eveidence of premature wear or tire failure. This is the second set of Avon's I have had on a Goldwing...Great tires....would purchase again. October 19, 2015
Excellent Gold Wing Tire! After a number of years on my wing, this is my first set of Cobras - and, Im hooked. Great handling and braking - excellent looks. I'm looking forward to the milage, but so far these are the best tires I've ever had on the bike. Buy with confidence. October 7, 2015
Avon AV72 Cobra Rear - Replacement From Stock Dunlop Tire Series- D407 240/40R18 Blackwall- 18 in. Rear-41688-08A. - The stock rear Dunlop tread was gone in 3500 miles and the "STEALER", I mean Harley dealer wanted $314.95 for stock Dunlop & $48,00 for the mount. - Revzilla price matched the Avon AV72 Cobra Rear for $177.00 & local bike builder mounted for $35.00. - With 1000 miles on the new Avon Cobra & $150 extra dollars in my pocket, I couldn't be happier ! July 27, 2015
Fantastic tires I ride a 2008 Harley Davidson Fat Bob. I love how the Avon tires made it feel like a new machine. Some of the expressway near me are grooved and with the Avon Cobra tires I don't feel them pulling like the factory tires did. I haven't been caught in the rain so I can not rate the wet traction. My bike has changed since I put the Avon Cobra tires on, I can take corners faster, the ride is much smoother and quieter now. (AV 71 MT90B16 74H on the Front, AV72 MT90B16 74H on the rear) so far the tread has not shown any signs of wear but I only have 1200 Miles. I am very happy with these tires and I will get them again. I was very impressed with Revzilla, When I ordered my tires, I had them shipped to my work (I live 60 Mi from my office). I received a phone call from Revzilla to verify that I had put down the correct address. I really appreciated that attention to detail and care for me, I will be making more purchases from Revzilla. July 25, 2015
This product is one of the best tires I have ever purchased Took it cross country. Through rain and storms, held up great. Still rolling cross country and back. July 7, 2015

Kevin Z: Got a nail in my OEM Bridgestone on Goldwing........ had to have a new tire and this was the best price for an 80H tire I saw. Oct 6, 2015
Lloyd H: research indicates good results especially in wet conditions. OEM FXDF tires average on dry conditions but get loose quickly in wet conditions. Sep 28, 2015
Roy H: Simple, because they were the only tires I could find the day I needed to order them. If Michelin still made Gold Wing tires that is what I would have. If you check previous orders, I purchased Michelins for my Buell and BlackBird. Aug 17, 2015
