    I) Dunlop Monster..(800/- INR in delhi) if you have a bit of offroad on your dailly commute way..then its good.. 100% tarmac.. waste..

    II) Geo Cruiser.. (800/- INR in delhi): The THE worst tyre... good for nothing.. the cheapest tyre..many people use it..but trust me its THE worst...

    Reason being: tryes very hard,and heavy,gives a lot of stress to the engine..god for person's who are learning wheeliee's ..

    METRO CONTINENTAL(800/- INR in delhi): IF you put up in chhera punji or myswarryam..then this tyre is THE BEST ..

    KINGS(1200/- INR in delhi):100% chineese tyres.. worthless.. waste of money...

    VEE RUBBER(17-1800/- INR in delhi):Very nice tyres.. awesome grip.. soft compound..provides a less grip when comes in contact with water + tarmac..

      XBHPian Prasad too has used IRC as well as Michelins, he too has the same opinion.
      ^^^ Very True... MIchelin Seems to Be Very much lighter than IRC,and Even DURO seems to be a very good choice...

                      • Thank you so much Pranay. I'm sorry I didn't see this earlier. You've sure done some research to reiterate that the Pulsar has a 17" rim, which it sure does.

                        I think the R15s have tubeless tires right? Would it be fine to fit on the alloy rim? I was narrowing down on the CEAT Secura Zoom for the front. Let me know your thoughts. I've just mastered the art of cornering and am in love with it, which is why I'm being a little picky here.

                        The Hindu Business Line : New Bajaj Pulsars: `Re-loaded' at all right places

                        "...The most striking pair of features that the Pulsars have been given are of course the new 17-inch, six-spoke alloy wheels and the gas shock absorbers..."


                        @mempheS.D: the current R15 tyres have great grip. I suggest you go for that one for your 2006 Pulsar.

                            • well i was just cheking out my tyre and saw a nail, so repaired my tubeless tyre.And i had no clue why the tyre was deflating quickly in 7 days.
                              And i think the nail must be there for atleast 20 odd days.

                              Just need some gyaan on tubeless tyre as it was a first puncture in 17000kms. although it is repaired now and it was merely a 5 min job but i can see that stick which was fixed in my puncture is capturing some space outside the tyre too. Is it normal??
                              mechanic said it will get strong due to heat when your tyre rotates.
                              its all about CC...
