I want to replace the front tires on my f3t to car tires. Any suggestion where to have them installed? Has any one had a laser alignment done locally? Happy with results? What was the cost?

Why do you want car tires on the front?

A lot of people on spyderlovers consider the stiffer sidewalls to provide a much less sqiuirly soft sort of feel in the front end. Clearly some find the ride fine as is but I don’t

I put arachnid tires all around on my 2011 RTS,  the old style V twin. it is not the tires that is making the front end feel loose on your newer bikes, it is the refined suspension geometry. 2012 Spyder s or newer have a very slight difference in over lap with the upper and lower control arm. this makes the newer bikes very light steering on the front end. I don't know if any tire will fix that. My 2011 is heavy on the front end steering, the new bikes very light. so your light front end may be the suspension tweak  and not the tires. The arachnid tires work very well. on line Canada Parts, motorcycle tires section. I prefer the heavier feel to the front end, especially at speed. I get real feed back from the front end so I know what the bike is doing or more importantly, going to do at speed before it happens. I have 88,000 km on my 2011 RTS.  I don't really like the light front end feel of the newer Spyders.   Derek Q
