hi if i juz wanna change bt090 for my back wheel how much huh think of changing it soon....

If I'm not wrong 090 are racing tyres... Racing tyres are meant for track and they have limited heat cycles (heat up and cool down), which after some heat cycles their performance will drop...

 

Try getting road tyres instead unless you intend to hit the tracks, better wet traction, and heats up more easily compared to track tyres to provide early grip. My 2 cents. :)

batilax bt090 $220 soft compound

sportec m1 $230

bt090 $265

 

location , lim ah boy

 

why waste so much money i go to other bike shops i will be paying them 30 to 50 bucks extra can pump petrol!

Sometimes, its the workmanship.... I'm sure a lot of ppl here wun mind payin dat bit more for better workmanship....

 

I've seen mechanics installing the tyres wrongly, as in the other direction against the arrow stated. There's another incident where the mechanic forgot to tie a couple screws after puttin back the tyre... Very screwed up rite?

*No names mentioned*

 

Of coz, u'll also hav to check the shelf live of the tyre dat'll be installed on ur bike....

hi seancsm, will tat pop out looks like chewing gum will disappear over time cos i think riding long enough will properly flaten it , will it ? cos season liao mah? what is ur experience of ur S4 and phantom?

Last but not least ur alfra romeo looks nice leh, how much u bought on the road, means everything eG tax ,insurance or whatever .

think everyone answered your queries already :smile:

for my s4 and phantom they both flatened out over time.

 

agree with most ppl here to get a tyre patch kit.. very impt to get one.

 

to add on, on certain cars (like Alfa GT), there's no spare tyre in the trunk. instead they provide you with some kind of tyre patch kit :sweat:

 

ps. the alfa in e pic isn't mine.. not so fortunate... yet... :smile:

I today just went Loois motor to mend my rear tyre cos hit a nail.

The mechanic insert a long rubber tube thing inside the hole of the punctured tyre and cost me $5, is that expensive, how much u all guy mend ah?

 

Last but not least, when i reach my destination, i take a look at the tyre again, the rubber thing is not evenly paste -- pop out one leh , like the tyre had run onto the chewing gum and stick on the wheel, dont look nice, is it like tat one?

don't worry..its a 'standard' price...the'worm' is there for the purpose of stopping any air leak..so don't mind the outlook too much...=p
