Choosing your Motorcycle Tire

 

When to check motorcycle tires?

 

motorcycle tiresWhen you purchase a motorcycle, the tires are fitted new. What you need to do is take a look at the tires from time to time and purchase new tires at the right time. What are some of the signs and symptoms of this? Read below…

 

Tread depth – when you see that the wear bars on your motorcycle tires are flush with the tread of the tire, you know it is time to buy new tires.

 

Cracking – when you see cracks on the sidewalls or on the tread, ensure you make a change.

 

Punctures – too many punctures and cuts make your motorcycle tires unsafe. This may be time for a change.

 

Age – no matter how good your motorcycle tires are, you should replace them after five years of use. You should take this as a thumb rule.

 

Manufacturer recommendation is safe to follow

 

Your motorcycle manufacturer will recommend certain tires. While a lot of marketing and profit making goes into these recommendations, it is not a bad idea to adhere to them. After all, your motorcycle manufacturer will never want you to be unsafe and they would have done their due research before recommending a particular tire brand. You can safely stick to the manufacturer’s advice.

 

Know about the different motorcycle tires

There are different types of motorcycle tires depending on how you intend to use your bike. Have a look below and you will know the type of tires you should spend money on.

 

Cruising tires

These tires are known for their superior grip irrespective of the surface, thus allowing you more control on stability.

 

Off-road tires

These tires are for off-roads and have secured rim locks to prevent spinning in rough terrains. These tires typically have a knobby design.

 

Race tires

These tires are for race track use where you need to manage your drive at tight angles and accelerate from a standing position.

 

Sport tires

The radial pattern on these tires allow for superior road grip and let you handle your bike better in wet and dry conditions. These tires are more durable than the race tires.

 

Touring tires

These tires are stable and offer excellent driver control for long distance driving in different weather conditions.

Understand how motorcycle tire size is calculated

 

The size of your motorcycle tires should be just perfect and there are five elements you should know about so that you can pick the right size. Every tire has a five-part size number and this number comprises of, in the order, width, aspect ratio, speed rating, tire construction and rim diameter. If you are not sure what each of these elements means, you should check them out online. You can rest assured that there is enough information available.

 

Tubed or tubeless motorcycle tires?

 

Another decision that you need to take is about choosing between tubed and tubeless motorcycle tires. Tubeless tires have become more popular now because they retain less heat and the chances of the tire bursting due to a puncture have been largely negated. Tubed tires, on the other hand, are economical and easier to repair or replace.

 

Ensure you read the online reviews

 

There are enough tire manufacturers and most of them have their presence in Canada. It is best to go through the reviews of the various motorcycle tires available online so that you know what you should buy and what you shouldn’t.
