    I ordered a set of Dunlop GPR Alpha 10's from Big Bendum, the front was a 120/17 and the rear a 150/17. As before good service, ordered on the phone, sent money by ATM and they were delivered the next day up to Korat from Bangkok. The price was around 7,000 baht for the pair and 200 baht for the shipping.
    First time I've used these tyres and all I can say is that they are fantastic, tons of grip and sticky as hell. Based on the state of them after getting them out the first day after fitting they will not last long but they are great. Anyone looking for decent grip for a mid sized bike, these are the business.

    Hello,

    Does anyone know about Pirelli MT 60 Corsa? Here is a review: http://www.webbikeworld.com/motorcycles ... lli-tires/ Would these fit on a D'Tracker?

    I am looking for a tyre for D'Tracker that would be good on/off road (70/30) and suitable for rainy season. Any ideas/recommendations will be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I recently enquired about the MT60's and Speed Demon, here is the reply I received from Pat at Pirelli

    'MT60 RS CORSA (Super Moto Radial)
    802800 120/70R17TL 58VCORSA MT60F 5,000baht
    802700 160/60R17TL 69VRS CORSA MT60R 6,400baht
    Or you can use the 120/70R17MT60RS Corsa 5,000baht + 130/70-17Normal MT60 6,000baht

    If you didn't want on/off road tyres then the Pirelli Speed Demon are a great upgrade from the standard IRC tyres

    110/70-17M/CTL 54H(M) SPORDF 2,200baht
    130/70-17 M/C TL 62S SPORTD 2,300baht
    Sport Demon tyres are known to be way superior than the D-Tracker's IRC oem tyres.
    Better handling, grip, mileage and wet performance.'

    Hope this helps

    So can someone help me understand if a tubeless tire would be ok with a tube in it on a Dtracker?

    I am in the process of buying new tires for my Honda Magna and would like the members here to recommend good brands. I asked in a shop here and was told a rear tire is 4000 baht and a front tire is 2800 baht which seems normal to me, but unluckily I did not ask them what brand they were selling. Any recommendations?

    I find the Bridgestone Battlax BT021 is very good value for money but the best tires money can buy are Pirelli IMO. I get my Bridgestones from Kawasaki Rama 9 and Pirellis from ShowPow on Onnut. Ride On! Tony

    Thanks a lot for that. The prices I quoted, do they look normal for Bridgestone tires?

    If you're like me & been waiting for new Bridgestone Trail Wings, there's a new shipment coming into the country at the end of the month - only a week to go. :clap:

    Hello all, I'm new here.

    I live in the UK most of the year apart from long trips to ride in Europe. I usually stay in Thailand for 4 months each winter. I have a home in Sriracha and a new one in Kanchanaburi where the roads are free from big lorries and potholes. Bliss!

    I ride a BMW R1150R bike in the UK and have a R1200C in Thailand (I like Beemers!).

    My question on this thread concerns Michelin tyres and tyre fitting stations near Kanchanaburi.

    I have Michelin Commander tyres on my bike in Kanchanaburi. The rear, 170/80 15 77H, is worn out and brittle and needs replacing. It's ok in the dry but slides all over the place in the damp. I have tried to locate a supplier in Thailand without success. The company that put my new Michelin front tyre on is Damrong Tire in Bangkok but they've stopped supplying Michelin bike tyres now.

    Does anyone know of a tyre dealer, say in Bangkok, that can supply Michelin Commander tyres?

    The alternative is for me to bring out a new Michelin tyre from the UK with me in November. In which case does anyone know of a tyre dealer in Kanchanaburi that can fit and balance big bike tyres? Otherwise I'll have to transport the rear wheel to Bangkok to have it fitted.

    Any help gratefully received.

    Problem solved!

    Dropped an email to EK Paiboon in Bangkok and received the following reply:

    "Yes, I have Michelin Commander Rear tyre 170/80-15 .
    Unit price is 4,300 Baht. Fitting and Balancing are free of charge.

    Sincerely yours,
    Pairoj Th.
    Tel : 02-623-0775"

    Great stuff. Saves me a lot of bother.

    Still waiting for a rear tyre & no news.
    It's wet season & my preferred tyre is the Bridgestone Trail Wing.
    But NO stock yet.

    Does anyone have good experience with these in the wet
    Pirelli MT60
    Metzler Tourance
    Metzler Sahara

    Size should be: 140/80 -17 69h

    Michelin Anakees are a no no for me in the wet.

    I covered just over 15,000 miles on the Bonnie using Metzeler Tourance. Second set have done 3000 miles so far. No problems at all - but dont take liberties with them that would be my recommendation. They seem OK on wet roads but if muddy/greasy will slip & slide like any other tyre. :)

    OK - bad news - but try some Tourance - Paddock used to sell them (but dont anymore) & had their remaining stock on offer I dont think you will be disappointed!

    Happy at last. Finally sourced something decent...
    pirelli-mt90-tyre-001.

    pirelli-mt90-tyre-002.

    a Pirelli MT90 Scorpion. A big thanks for the fast efficient service from the guys & gal at Showpow in Bangkok.
    No slowness on their part, only mine being away for a few days, plus time considering all the possible options; & there were only a couple.

    Pat also recommended Scorpion Trails for my BMW R1200GS. I have run 13000,km on them and never had any problem with grip, wet or dry. Still have a few K left, so good wearing tyre as well.

    Jeff "Pikey" recommended Scorpion Trails to me last time I was due for tyres but Paddock had the Metz. Tourance on offer at a very good price so wallet cramp got the better of me - I will try them next time however & will be interested to know how various users go on with them & the mileage they get out of them. My first set of Tourance did just over 15,000 miles but were "past it" second set have done 3,000 miles so far. :happy1:

    Hi David, Is that actually 15,000 miles, rather than Km, because thats a very good mileage.

    MILES - Bonnie T100. Good torquey engine - no need to thrash it through the gears - ridden smoothly - & no abuse such as wheelies, stoppies or anythingelsie's. The original tyres were Metzeler Lazertecs & these did just over 13,000 miles. Choice of tyres for the beast are limited because of the tubed rims so the Pirelli will be a good choice I think next time. :happy1:

    A BIG THUMBS up for the PIrelli Scorpions in the wet.
    Last Saturday I came back from Pai in the wet over the mountains & I got to really test the Scorpion rear out.
    img_8010.

    img_8013.

    img_8045.

    As many of you will know R1095 Pai - Mae Malai is a real greasy one in the wet; but with the Scorpion on the rear I've never ridden so hard or had so much fun in the wet, testing out a new tyre.
    Not one scary moment or slide. I got to the stage where I decided to back off as I was pushing it more than ever in the wet trying to find out when the tyre would start to let go and - nothing. :clap:
    My normal preference has always been for Bridgestone Trail Wings in the wet, but not anymore = Pirelli Scorpions for me! :thumbup:
