  • Which Tyres?

    Its getting towards the time when I am going to need to replace the tyres on the Thunderace.
    I have been quoted for Pirelli, Bridgestone and Dunlop Qualifiers.
    I currently am running a horrible mix of tyres..
    Any advice ?

      I guess it would be sport touring, the bike is my daily ride, as well as getting let off the leash on a weekend

        Daily... Pirellis and Qualifiers I would suggest are a bit soft for daily stuff. Never been a big fan of bridgestone but YMMV.

        Possibly the Pilot Sport or one of the newer dual compound sports tyre e.g. metzler, continental etc..etc...

          Pilot Road 2CT might be a good option for sticky sides.

          I've been using Avon Storm AV55/56 and have been quite happy with them.

          Not a fan of Bridgestone 020's (rear is fine, front is yuk).

                  Im running BT002 Race Street .. Ive done 3 sets of them now .. they are a great tyre.

                  Need a few minutes to warm up in the dead of winter ... but other than that .. they are really good.
                  Some say he eats sidchrome for breakfast

                  Some say he only showers on even days of the week

                  Some say he put an R1 motor in a coffee machine

                  All we know is he's Hewie.

                              I have asked the question...
                              Told that they are Pilots...
                              No reference to 2CT or Powers
