I really like the BT45s - 100/90/19 front and 110/90/18 rear.

I do get a little funkiness from the front tire on fast constant-radius turns when I accelerate out of them but I think it's more of a bike thing since my bike's geometry is all screwy compared to stock.

I would think with bikes this old the tires will hold on long after the chassis will give up. As long as I can scrape the sidestand I'm golden.
