    Default Karizma tyre change & chain set replacement

    I have ZMA, 5+ yrs old. So, its tyres needed to be changed. Please suggest me wider tyres that can be fitted exactly & without removing the chain cover & improve performance.
    As, it 5+ yrs old so the chain set is due to be changed. So, I am thinking of getting this work done together. So, should I first tyres changed & then go for chain set replacement or viceversa.
    Also, please suggest me shops in Delhi where I can get all tyre brands and alloy balancing can also be done.

    You can do either first.change front sprocket, rear sprocket and chain.

    I suggest you to go for Michellin or Pirelli.

    Michellin m45 : front and rear




    Michellin Pilot Sporty : Rear only available, no front


    Pirelli Sport demon : rear ( heavy than michellin and incase u dnt want michellin)

    If i go for Pirelli Sport demon, can this also be fitted normally without removing the chain cover and which front tyre can be used with this one.
    Please also tell me about performance of these tyres.
    Thanks for the suggestions.

    hi! worrisomebear, can you tell me about exact specification of M45 as I searched this tyre around and could'nt find. So, I think I need to order these. And while searching for these tyres some of the dealers in Delhi told me M45 is not good at all for Indian roads,MRF zapper would be a better one. Please try to resolve my confusion.

    And please xbhpians,help me out to find tyre dealer in Delhi that have these brands and get my wheels balanced. I was unable to find workshop where alloys can be balanced and today Karol Bagh was closed, so could'nt get these tyres from there and informtion from there about wheel balancing. I need to get my alloys balanced as in my current tyres there is uneven wear n tear.
    Thanks in adavance.

    Default Hey xbhpians, help me out..

    I found Michelin M45 (both front & rear) with a dealer, he will directly order to the company but he is saying that these tyres are tube type. Please confirm me that are these tyres tube type? Or these are tubeless..

    Please reply as need to get these tyres fit in immediately.

    thanks for replying puneet, so if do not put in the tube in tube type tire & get the air nozel changed, as it done by most of the tire dealers these days, will it affect the tire in any sense and reduce overall performance?
    And, also tell me, if there are any other tires available that can fit in directly that are tube less, both for front & rear.
