Your tyres are the only point of contact between your motorcycle and the road. Select the right tyres for your bike and your intended style of riding from our range.
Choosing the right tyres for your motorcycle starts with knowing what size and style of the tyre that you need to choose from, but you will also want to consider aspects such as longevity and cost. It can all seem a little overwhelming, but we’re here to help you make the right choice.
It starts with your ride. Before you jump into picking from among our wide selection of top quality motorcycle tyres, you’ll first want to start off by considering the type of bike you own. Choosing the right tyre is not a “one size fits all” type of situation.
If you’re into sports bikes, for example, you need to get your hands on tyres where grip and handling are at the forefront of the design. Something along the lines of our Michelin Power RS Tyre, which boasts great handling and sturdy traction.
If you’re searching for sport-touring tyres, you can count on getting a longer distance out of them, and having better grip in the wet.
Choosing the right size. All our popular brands are available in a range of sizes, and for good reason – the size of your tyres will most definitely impact your ride. When you’re looking at a tyre, you’ll notice that it has figures branded into the sidewalls, and it is these that indicate the fitment and the speed rating. The first fraction represents the section width of the tyre (in mm’s), while the last figure is the tyre’s load rating. This number is important as it indicates the highest permissible load weight for that particular tyre. The tyre will also usually indicate the aspect ratio and the diameter of the rims to which the tyres correspond.
We advise that you stick with the recommended tyre size because choosing a different size could alter the handling and impact the bike’s stability.
Match your tyres. When you’re buying a set of tyres, make sure that it’s a set – mismatching your tyres is not a great idea as this could end up impacting your traction, stability and the longevity of the tyres.
