    I wonder if those 150/60's were even available back when I first switched to the 140/70 BT45'S? But like the information you found, I probably wouldn't have gone with an H rated tire anyway, even if they were available at the time. The only issue I've ever encountered with my 140/70 BT's is that they require 42psi (cold) to last very long, let them get low and they tend to begin cupping fairly quickly.

    What is the entire model number of your front tire...? Just wondering.

    I'm not at home right now to put eyes on the tire, but I'd guess it's the exact same bt45 140/70 18, v rated radial, currently listed all over Ebay, which is where I order a lot of my tires.

    MPN: 072818 - That is what I was trying to ascertain... That is a bias ply tire... It probably doesn't matter in your case because you are a darksider anyway...
    Of course, if your rear CT is a bias ply tire, it's a NO Biggie... and you're Good-To-Go! That is at least your technology matches, front to rear... LOL

    I think it's a bias ply tire. Now I'm certain to die a flaming death from BOTH my tire choices. CT on the rear and mis-matching bias with radials. Oh my! I guess I've been lucky this past 40,000 miles or so. Of course, now with 'rona' loose around every corner, nook and cranny, what's the big deal if I die a flaming tire choice death? They could write it down as just another 'rona' death and no one would be the wiser.

    What About DUNLOP D251 tire, I think it is the better choice.
