Hi guys,

Front 16" tire is hard to find, but in my country I see one dealer sell Dunlop Qualifier for usd 180, good deal or not? My front tire should last about 500 km or more and I only travel in city.

TIA


dunlop qualifiers i think they are designed for race tracks? if you really dont have any other choice ... you can still use dunlops...

No other choice, or perhaps I didn't search enough place. Anyway, I'll get it in a month or two as I have to save up some $$. Btw, my front tire is currently on Qualifier too, and rear is Dunlop Roadsmart... so stick to dunlop is great for me.

Bridgestone still make the front, I've got a pair of Battlax Hypersport S20's.

Wow, that's quite some distance you managed to sqeeze out of your rubbers, KANE!
I have had a Bridgestone Battlax BT-016 and now a Shinko 011 Verge on the rear. Both got only about 8000km to pure boldness. Might be the hot, tough climate here... but I think over in Sri Lanka it's not much different. Maybe the road surfaces are smoother?! I'm thinking about getting a new Bridgestone S20 evo soon.

Currently I have a 190 rear (although not Dunlop). Actually the 190 turned out to give a narrower footprint than the 180 I had earlier. It's more of a bulge on the 5.5" rim. Also, there are differences between the brands, some generally turn out wider, others narrower.

Recently I haven't been riding as much as I wish I had. But after quite a while a managed to change the rear tyre on my Hornet. The Shinko was done after about 8000km on rough roads and in hot climate...

The new one is a Bridgestone Battlax S20 evo. This time I went for the 180/55 size. First impressions are pretty good. Nice sticky rubber...
