    I've been using it for 1 year now, based on advice of a pretty senior rider who has had P220 since more than a decade now.

    Also, on the topic of tyres, I would suggest going for TVS Remoras or the Zapper C (rear) if you're on a budget. They get the job done without making a hole in your pocket.
    No it won't. Even if it bulges theoretically it won't affect anything. On the contrary i find the increase in rear size better in corners.

    I think you've got confused with the tire ratings. The R15 V2 has a tire profile of 90/80, whereas the P220's is 90/90. Trust me, it make a difference in cornering stability.

    So its time to change the tyres.
    Tell me which are best tyres for front and rear..

    The tyres ive selected are -

    Front - MRF zapper FS , Pirelli Angel CT
    Rear - Mrf Zapper C , Mrf mogrip meteor m

    Pls sugest any better tyres and best combination

    It should last for around minimum of 15k kms..
    Try not to go for the FY1 of the R15, the 220 will definitely feel twitchy though the tire offers excellent grip. Stick to FS if you can for the front, a decent tire with good grip. For the rear, you can go with CEAT ZOOM or Zapper Vyde of the same stock rating, if you can get hold of the Vyde, fantastic tire with superb grip and being a round profile, easy to lean in corners. The ZOOM is currently doing duty on our 220 and it's a very good all rounder tire with very good grip. Stick with front for the stock and get the CEAT for the rear, both are bias ply and you'll have an even match. The rear 130/70 and 140/70 too fit without the 220 without much trouble, but it call comes down to cost factors. My two cents.

    Cheers!

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

    If stock is what you wan't then go for stock.

    As for application, the P220 has a 1.85 inch rim, 90/80 would fit just fine.

    I don't know what setup you ran on yours but on mine even after scraping pegs there's quite a bit of unused contact patch left.

    I hear you bud. On my Red One days, it was always stock front with VYDE on the rear after two replacements, same as stock never cared to upgrade them, as I was happy for what they offered. And on the Black One currently, it's both CEAT ZOOM both front and rear, all stock. Again, no complains whatsoever.

    The FY1s grip well on the 220's 1.85", but they are twitchy for what they have to offer and from my experience on the same on a 220, but it's just a red herring from my side for potential users. The front did looked bulged up due to wide tire on a narrow rim of the 220. On my R15, with the 2" I can't and won't run any other tire spec, because from experience I know the front end starts to have its own mind and the rear just won't stay put when things are interchanged. Trust me, the R15 isn't as forgiving as 220 especially when it comes to tire combinations. Oh yes, the 220 with peg scraping will still have patch left even on the stock tire.

    For most part, I would suggest to fiddle with the rear, but definitely not the front, generally as a thumb rule. Good compounds yes, diff numbers no. But hey, free world, and all we can do is just help people with what is and what not.

    Cheers!

    35-38, I'm doing 32 front and 40-45 rear. But then again, probably I weigh 50 pounds more than you.
