Tyres for 2003 f650GS ??? 2 years, 4 months ago #116860

Good morning everyone,

I'm looking to buy some tyres for my bike. Will mainly be used on the road but with the odd off road/dirt/gravel type track every now and then.

Any recommendations for tyres and tubes will be very much appreciated.

Cheers.

Balls!! Just noticed I put this in the wrong section! Soz moderators.

Well..

choices are ..all depending on how much MUD you will be going through..

But Heindeau K60 scouts....Mitas E09 or if slightly gravel but never any green lanes then then the mitas E07 will do..

as you probably know ..no one tyres excels at all things just most and how much you want to pay and how long you want them to last..

loads of tyre info in here somewhere..

If you're anywhere near Humberside I've got a set of Tourances with less than 1000 miles on you can have for nothing. They'll handle gravel and light off road, no good in mud though but very nice on the road.

Avon Distanzias, if it's mostly road use. They last a long time and good grip.

They do alright on green lanes if the ground is dry.

No problem, but if you're passing they're not going anywhere.
