Anyone know of a company that is making a 150/80-16 (77H) wide white wall rear tire? I know there are some in lighter load ranges but I do a lot of two-up riding and would like the wider tire and higher load range.
I have checked just about all of the tire companies and can't seem to find one. Am I missing it?

I just put the ME880 150/80-16 on my RK... looks great. It is a blackwall, but I recall seeing a whitewall listed.... not sure how wide the whitewall however.

Check them out.

I have the same tire on my classic and my dads SEEG and not a one problem...You should be fine with a R/K.

Okay it looks like Avon has a tire that is that size. Is anybody running it on their touring bike? How does it hold up? Good or bad in rain?
