    Avon Cobra Chrome tyres

    Any one changed these yet, either due to preference or wear? I have over 4.5k miles on mine and I think it will need replacement in the next 1k miles. I usually get 8k miles out of sport-touring tyres like roadsmarts so I was wondering if 5k is good or bad from these Avons.

    tyres choice

    Hi, I'd like "Pilot Power 3" by Michelin. I would opt for them 240/45/ZR17 82W. However it isn't done for 16" wheel. So I don't know if it fit, so neither difficulty or nor hurt me seriously. It doesn't even our size for front tyre too, so I thought 160/70/ZR17 69W. It's designed yet for rear...

    Tyre Profile

    Hi has anyone tried a 140 profile on the front of their Rocket instead of the standard 150 profile? Just wondering if there is any improvement in the steering without affecting high speed stability. Cheers Marco

    New tyres fitting, should it be difficult?

    I went to get new tyres fitted on the weekend. Before I arrived the bloke said the rear is a pain, bad rim design with no well for the tyre bead to drop in to for fitting the tyre. Anyway, on arrival there was more warning that the tyre may rip, and sure enough it did! So back on went the old...
