STOW, Ohio – Avon Tyres has new round rubber for Harley-Davidson’s Fat Boy lineup, a tire duo called the Cobra combination that the company said offers good handling and stability.

When compared to the stock tires, the Cobra combo gives Fat Boy riders nimble handling at lean angles and in a variety of other conditions, Avon reported. The Cobra set drops the typical center groove for what Avon calls Force Following Grooves that reportedly transmit energy from the road evenly across the surface of the tire. The tread design is designed to also reduce irregular wear.

The Cobra combo fit 2007 and newer Fat Boy models, the 2006 Screamin’ Eagle Fat Boy, and the Fat Boy Lo, model years 2010 and newer.
