    I am planning to swap my tyres for MRFs next month. Am already close to 18k on the stock and IRCs are not inspiring anymore confidence while riding, specifically on wet and cemented surfaces.

    Braking is also an issue, but that is a different story all together.

    There are better tyres like Michellin, Metzler etc, but if you are looking for tyres in a budget and decent performance, then I can't think of anything better than the MRFs.

    My rides are mostly commute now. Also touring is slowly picking up. So I think tyres in a budget is what I am looking for.

    Thanks for the pic. I think I would settle for the Revz series. I think they used to come for the R15 as well. I have been postponing to next month every month. I am already at 21K kms on the stock now

    I switched to metzeller sportec street tyres from the stock mrf on my 2016 R3, made a huge difference in overall grip, and is said to be a direct competitor to Michelin pilot street tyres, priced at 8.5k per set, stock fronts and upsized rears to 150/70-17, you can check these out too, these aren’t the supersofts category tyres like Pirelli Diablo rosso2/metzeller sportec M5 intetac, but more of a tourer kinda long life tyre.
