Hiya All,
for those of you who like to ride when it gets a little cooler but don't like the lack of grip, I have found and purchaed some winter tyres.
There is nothing for the 16" so you need a 2000+ or conversion.

They arrive next week, I'll keep you posted about my experience with them.

Cheers,
JS

You need all the help you can get for winter riding - it will be interesting to see if they provide superior grip in winter to standard tyres because they are presumably designed to reach optimum performance at much lower temperatures than standard road tyres.

About time! Next up when I need tyres will be some winter summer tyres for sure.

I replaced the 215/50 17" Michelin Primacies (summer tyres) with the same size Michelin Cross Climate all seasons tyres back in November.

On my car, this is.

The Cross Climates are heavily siped, very much like the Michelin Pilot Road tyres I have on my Hornet.

Main question, have I noticed a difference ?

On the car.

In the dry, possibly a little vague feeling in hard cornering, compared to the Primacies. In the wet, I fancy I can feel more grip, and in the recent snow they were definitely grippier. It'll be interesting to see how they wear, I got through three sets of Primacies in 35k miles, although mates suggest that my driving habits might have influenced this wear rate. Just had to have a new set of front disks and pads as well. ( Ford Grand C-Max 163bhp )

On the bike.

I wouldn't know a sticky tyre if it bit me in the arse. I've had BT010, BT014, and some Avon AV39/40 things that wore out in no time, and I can't tell any difference in the dry between those and the Michelin Pilots. In the wet I'm crapping myself anyway, Pilots just give me that little bit of reassurance. Still have bad memories of riding ( and falling off in the wet ) on OEM Michelin Hi Sports when I first got the Hornet.
