Recommended Posts

hi, does anyone knw where I can get pirelli semi slick tyres for mito in singapore. I know in the pirelli website, there are size for mito, however, it is hard to find a shop in singapore that sells pirelli tyres unused about 3months to 5mths old. Younger the tyres, the better it is for me. thats my preference to purchase.

 

I have tried Alpha 10 on my bike but i din like it. i find it its kinda still slippery on the white lines when its raining compare to Gpr70.

Aim is Tame mito 500cc 2 stroke! What seems impossible is always possible (((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))

michelin pilot power

 

fyi one of ma fren buang at pg on his 954, the other guy is my friends buddy also on pp2ct buang at pg.

 

last month ma fren buang at mersing during rainy weather on his pilot power 2ct. but he is a fast rider btw.

 

Super Corsa meant more for dry weather due to its tire groove, it does its work to channel the water but not as gd as road tires. corsa 3 is a gd choice since ur occasional track riding. anyway track tires needs to warm up longer then normal tires before u can negotiate a "low corner" and they have certain number of heat cycle.

bro do you mind explaining about this heat-cycle issue? im currently on pilot powers and you are scaring me.. lol.. cos so far its been so good. takes street corners really well.

http://www.singaporebikes.com/forums/showthread.php?t=202224

 

Btw, wat bike u riding?

 

Juz flipped thru the my old issues of BIKE, the reviewer state Michelin Pilot Power 2CT and Metzeler sportec M3 should have longer tyre life. Meant for sportsbike.

i would choose Dunlop Qualifier, BT014 and sport attack , last Metzler M1

 

strongly suggest u to try Qualifier, its very competitve price and relatively newer tyre than the rest.

hi

any recommendations for

bike: s4 vtec tyres (set, front and rear)

usage: commuting locally. no track, very unlikely (practically no) touring.

budget: $250-350, including workmanship

concern: wet road conditions, i have alot of fear when road is wet, esp when taking turns.

 

ps: i think this is a good template for pple who is asking for recommendations.. hehe..

any s4 using pilot power? a mech tell me its for track and its not durable. very fast will finish the tread. true?

 

Pilot Power is probably the best tyre for road with the occasional track day use.

 

Mine are probably facing more track than road use but the grip from these tyres are great and they last pretty long when compared to the other 'softer' compound tyres. And for the weight of an S4.. these tyres would do very well on the tracks too... definitely better than the Dunlops 208s and BT014s... which really suck big time on the tracks.

 

I have personally seen too many people crash due to lowsides for no apparent reason other than suspected overheating of these 2 tyres.

 

Unless you are one of those who ride like Rossi everytime you hit the tracks.. its pointless getting those high end DOT race approved type of tyres. You would be just wasting the good rubber compound on a public road.

 

Most of us don't even push or cannot even push the stock low priced tyres to their limits.

 

But..... if you rich enough and got money to throw............thats another story.
