Tyres are among the most important components of your motorcycle. The interface between you and the road, if they’re not in optimum condition then you’re not only risking your safety but potentially 3 points on your licence and a £60 fine.
The capability of modern motorcycle tyres is extraordinary, with tyre technology continuing to make enormous strides in recent years.
However, the effectiveness of motorcycle tyres will diminish with wear and also deteriorate over time. A set of tyres that are over three years old should probably be replaced irrespective of visible tread wear.
Because tyres can go off gradually it’s easy to overlook the effect on your bike. But it is noticeable how new tyres can transform the handling of a motorcycle. So if your bike has lost some of its feel or developed other handling issues then ask us to check the condition of your current tyres – a new set of tyres might be all that’s needed.
Mileage and grip – new sport touring multi-compound tyres provide the best of both worlds
Before selecting replacement tyres for your bike consider the type of riding you do and what you want from your tyres – we can advise you on this and recommend suitable alternatives to OE fitment tyres for all types of motorcycles.
High performance sports tyres will wear out more quickly; that’s the trade-off you make for the extra levels of grip they provide. An alternative that’s well worth considering are the latest-generation sports touring tyres, now providing extended mileage capability combined with multi-compound formulations. These recent developments provide a versatile, everyday road tyre delivering grip levels and responsiveness which approaches that provided by dedicated sports tyres. Contact us to discuss the most suitable tyre options for your needs.
Vital to scrub-in new tyres
Remember to ride cautiously on a brand new set of tyres, allowing as much as 100 miles (not including wet riding) to fully scrub-in the surface of the new rubber before you begin to make any serious demands upon them.
