          Now if I get the actual chart, I wil buy the right size and not heavier and wider tyre for my poor bike.

          Considering that I currently commute close to 1500 kms every month, mileage is a very important factor for my bike.
          Bhai he is absolutely correct it is the same.. howeverr the diff that compnay writes 4.0 instead of 100/90 or 100/80 is that to differenciate between the front and the rear tyre tread and compound..
          pls do not aopt for that.. go for some other option.. arrey yaar.. u have 18" go for.. nylo zapper Q or "VyoE".. the treads in markets..my personal exp..

          Hows MRF zapper-Q, but this is not tubeless.

          I tried to get Pirelli SD 110 here in bangalore but could not find it
          Alright rahul...
          P.S: Prices May vary.. these were the prices i knew..any changes pls corect me!!
          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...

          III) Ceat: SECURA Zoom(1300/- INR in delhi): the only Dual purpose tyre..that motorcyles can bear wit...

          IV) Ceat: MOCROSS (1800/- INR in delhi): 100% OFF road tyre..useless for you..
          rest ceat.. no much idea..

          V) MRF Zapper Q..(12-1500/- INR in delhi): THE BEST FRO ZMA .. 120/80 section.. tubeless.. direct fit... no probs.. ultimate grip..even on water.. after Nylozapper FS and S,it is the tyre that gives the best water resource planning and awesome grip on water on tarmac..

          VI) Pireli.. (18-2000/- INR in delhi) :Way to costly.. and gives you awesome grip.. but not on water,also a bit of soft compound..so wear's Off fast..


          VII) Last but not the least.. there are a couple of more brands:

          RALCO(650/- INR in delhi): Useless,this company earlier manufactured tyre for rickshaw's and cycles..with the brand name of "RALSON"..
          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..
          rest in all fine..

          Phheeeww..
          Anything else.. Sir..??

            Tubeless tyres dont deflate just like that, You either dont come to know about puncture or will lose air off the tyre slowly.
            Its just about checking tyres every week. Thats it.

            Lappu Bhaiya, ye Voye kya hai...But I am still confused about this 4.00 v. 100 section, can anyone link up to a proper chart..

                    not exactly... i have had a very horrible experience once with my car where the tubeless deflated suddenly and because i was on a bridge i rolled down slowly to take it to the side and change the flat
                    unfortunately when i took to the mrf guys to repair he said teh tyre is damaged because og running it when deflated
                    lesson learned that a tubeless is no more convenient that a tubed in case of a flat..
                    Why is the man who invests all your money, called a broker?

                      I dont have offroad on my daily commute, but I have bit more on my week end rides

                      I thought MRF-Zapper Q is not a tubeless tye. Is this available in 110 size. If I want to use 120 I have to remove the chain cover I think. I dont want to remove the chain cover.

                      How's Ceat: SECURA Zoom and Dunlop Monster support cornering?? Is this available in 110 size??

                        @rahul: I said its a direct fit no need to remove the chain cover,else other wise if needeed you can remove itt,,also just kip a note after every 500-700kms .. do its oiling..
                        also it is availaible in tube less..


                        @rahul...: Both Of these tyres do not support much ..
                        yes they might be avlble..
