I just got a 1991 GSX250R with 13000k's on the clock. However the tyres have never been changed in that time---thats 14 years! I did a durometer test on the tyre and they are as hard as a car tyre...lol. So I was gunna learn to ride for a short while before changing them. My question is what tyre brand and type would you guys reckon is the best tyre for me. Just so you know, I'm a brand new rider, I need time to learn so I'll be staying mostly close to town before venturing out into the country..I'm guessing this ofcourse because I dunno how best to learn yet...I am not fussed about how long they will last...a year or two is fine. I have worked for motorsport tyre companies (car not bike although worked on sidecars at SBK) and for wet weather we always worked on the principle..." for the wet...pattern to disperse the water, compound to get the grip". So I'm happy to get a softer compound if it means better wet weather grip. I imagine thats when most people fall off?? the front currently is a 100/80 x16 50S Dunlop K63 OF, and the rear is a 130/80 x16 64S Dunlop K63 O. So, anybody got some advice? Brand and type?
