The rack and offset on the front end allows the Springfield to handle exceptionally well, the problem is this can induce a high speed wobble if the tire pressure is too low. Do some searching for threads about this. The pressure is not a miss print. The higher pressure was a simple band aid to correct this issue. DeanCan anyone explain why front tire pressure on the 2018 Springfield is 46psi while all other models are 36psi? Bike rides and handles fine with that pressure but it seems strange to have so much more in the front than the rear.
You are lucky in Germany. Your Metz are "Made in Germany"!I changed the tyres recently on my 2016 Springfield. The OEM tyres are a nightmare in rain, would say even dangerous. After 16.000 km still with a lot of profile, just "Beton-Tyres". Now I have the new Cruisetec Tyres from Metzeler and I also changed the front wheel from 16 to to 19 inch, OEM Indian contrast cut wheel, what a difference! So much more grip in rain and improvement in overall handling. Here in Germany in our small Indian Community, we all change to that Metzelers! Tyre pressure front: max 2.5 bar, back: 2.8. Rode 180 km/h no wobbling, rides perfekt! I can really recommend everyone those tyres! The technology behind comes from the sport bikes. two different materials. The Challenger has that tyres stock!
