Matching Tyres

I am having problems finding a pair of matching road tyres for my 1982 Suzuki GSX400T. The front is 90/90/19, the rear is 110/90/17, if I have to mix brands what would be the best combination?  Thanks

Welcome GSX400 (what about the T?),welcome,have a look at this site,

http://www.oponeo.co.uk/moto/90-90-19-tyres

Have you considered 120/80-17 ? being 10mm wider (5mm each side) and 3mm less deeper (aspect ratio) than original but as you know they have to be tubed tyres.

If your not a high miler then consider these,

I`ve used similar on trail bikes but only for the road,they stick like shat to a blanket and half the price and mileage.

Thank you for the info, I will probably go with the Pirellis as the bike already has a 120/80 fitted and does not ride well.  Regarding the 'T', I can't find much about this model, it's not an import and I'm only the second owner. Thanks again.
