    Default Replace My Rear Tyres for New One of p220

    Hi All,

    My bike has clocked more than it should be to replace the Tyres. I want to go for fatter rear tyres in my current alloy. If it is not possible, suggest me good alternatives. I am open to replace rear alloys as well. One more question, can the Disc break be attached to it......

    I dont want to sell my bike for now, as I am totally satisfied with it..............

    Pulsar 150 DTS-i UG2

    Pls suggest...........

    Thanks

    The Wheel was a great invention; Two Wheels with a Motor in between was even better!

    Go for the FZ16's 140/60 tyre...its a direct fit onto the bike!

    It looks fat enough and performance is also pretty good!

    I am sure the FZ tire would touch the inner side walls of the swing arm of the P150 UG2.

    Go for Zapper Vyde 120/80 -17.

    Or Dunlop Geo-Cruiser 120/80, I'm not sure if it is available in 17&18".

    ....Praful are you sure...?

    I doubt

    And if et all even a 120 fits into it, he would have to do away with the chain guard...!

    I think Praful thought he had a 220.

    And you are right. Even for a 120 to fit, change guard needs to be removed. The scissors of the bike is pretty narrow.

    Zapper vyde is your best bet . else go for other thai tyres . they are good too .

    you can go for the rear tyre of the R-15 i.e zapper s . it is an excellent tire i am using it for 6 months now . never looses grip no matter how hard it is pushed into corners .
    Chrome rims and bling ? get a real life !
