    If you're able to source it, it's great.
    Do remember that Angel GT is a 2ct tyre ie., medium soft in the mid part and soft in the sides and sport demon is medium soft. Both the models won't last long like mrf or ceats. And many would advise no to the royal Enfield and the tyres are made for sport touring bikes.

    HiShreyas,
    Do you have any idea about Dunlop Geo Cruiser 625, they come in 120-80-18 configuration.

    HD,
    Which alloys you are planing to upgrade to.

    I am planning to ride on my Yamaha SZR to Leh/Ladakh and definitely my stock TVS tube tyres wont be a good choice. I am thinking of going for on/off road dual purpose tubeless tyres. I have narrowed down to the below, I need input on which is the better choice for rear and for front. If you have any other tyre brand in mind please suggest.

    Rear: Michelin Sirac Street 100/90 R17 TL (or) Ceat Gripp XL 100/90 TL (or) Ceat Vertigo 100/90 R17 TL
    Front: Michelin Sirac Street 2.75-17 TT (or) Michelin City Pro 2.75-17 TL (or) Ceat Gripp F 2.75 TL

    (Will TL tyres suit TT rims? The rims aren't damaged and thus I hope the tubeless tyres should fit with some adjustment for the air valves. If they don't then I will have no choice but to go with a tube tyre. In which case I prefer both Sirac Street TT for front and rear.)

    so am thinking about down sizing to 140/70
    REVZ C1 is what comes as stock rear and offers good grip, and decent life. The MRFs are real clean and kinda of mid performer, works well, does the job, and you wouldn't find a difference for daily use. If you want a little more edge, though not anything dramatically different than the MRFs but, and close to Metz like grip, you can consider the MPSRs. Both are decent tires.

    If your rims are an alloy type, then yes a TL tire can be plonked in without a problem. But, it also depends on the rim size and the rim seat as they play a crucial role in retaining the air seal. I personally use MSS on one of my bikes. Wet grip isn't all that great, dry grip is something Ive personally loved on the Michelin Sirac Street, they just hold your line. Vertigo rage is a more harder compound tire, this can take Ladakh and Leh with aplomb. Not that the Sirac Street can't take the Ladakh. Both are capable tires.

    Try not to make a Tube Type tire into a tubeless, they both have different rim bead and sidewall.

    Cheers!

    I finally went with Siriac Street for rear and Michelin city pro for front. Both tubeless and stock size. The grip and confidence level to tilt the bike is really an amazing feel. The tyres hold very well. Just need to see how the air holds because I cannot use the normal tubeless valve plugs. Well I guess these should do good for off-road. Must see how it does on ice and water.

    The SIRAC's offer adequate grip for the most part, when considering commuterish activities. Though it tends to lose grip on those damp patches, and fine sand pretty much easily. Dry grip is something these SIRACs stand apart.

    Exclamation Re: Tyres

    Hello Folks . . Its been 5 years i am riding on my ZMA with stock MRF zapper FS (33K mileage). I was thinking to change my tyres for sometime.. even though i see the treads are still prominent but i experience frequent skid on gravels and wet surface now with speed as low as 20kmph and moderately hard breaking.

    So i am thinking to change the set of tyre with michelin before this monsoon. I found michellin has CITY Pro and SIRAC Street for ZMA size.

    Can you guys help me out regarding the wet and gravel grip ; which model would be better. I am thinking to upgrade the rear tyre size to 110/80/90 and front either 2.75*18 or 80/100/18.
    If i upgrade the front to 80/100/18 ; will there be any handling issue ?

    By the time others help you ,reduce the air pressure in the tyre to get more grip. Don't upsize front tyre... Cause more water splash on ur feet unless you try something like mudflap for monsoon.. plus more load on engine the upsized tyres

    I own a fzs v2 (2015). I had upgraded my rear tyre to 140/70, since then the rear drum brake efficiency has reduced quite a bit, no matter how much I adjust the rear brake its not the same as before, even I have replaced the old brake shoes but its still the same. I think it is because of the higher profile tyre. Has anyone with the old fz have upgrades to a 140/70 tyre and face the same issue? Is there any way to solve it with aftermarket brake shoes or can brakeshoes of any other model bike be a direct fit to fzs v2 to solve the issue?
    And one more issue is that after getting the 140/70 tyre the bike has become tall geared and the pickup has reduced quite a bit which results in frequent gear changes in stop and go traffic. The new tyre (140/70) is 14mm taller than the stock tyre (140/60). My bike has a 41 teeth rear sprocket, can I get the same stock performance by installing a 42 or 43 teeth rear sprocket?
