                Once Again The Information is Here..

                P.S: Prices May vary.. these were the prices i knew..any changes pls corect me!![/COLOR]
                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..

                    Got a MRF Zapper Q 120 on my ZmaR... Cost me Rs 1800 including tube(JC road, Bangalore) . Had to remove the old chain guard and fit a new half-chain guard. Grip levels seem to have improved. Rear definitely looks chunky now. But acceleration has dropped a little, but not much...

                      @Loki

                        Michelin M45 4x18 is also the best tyre for Karizma. Great grip in wet conditions too (Pirellis are not that grippy in wet). The tyre is durable than Pirelli. the price range would be 1700-2000. It is a tube type tyre.

                        What I understood recently is, it is better to have a tube. Two weeks back we were riding back to Hyderabad, and it was sunday and around 7:30 pm. A p200 fell in a big pothole, and the two rims got bent. Being tubeless, immediately there was air loss. We had a very difficult time there, there was no repair as it was not a puncture. We had to look for tubes in a village and we had a very difficult time procuring a tube. The tyre puncture wala does not know how to handle the tubeless tyre. I came to know then, why a tube is important for our indian roads.

                            oops... missed reading this post.
                            arjun is opp castrol bike zone. know the mrf showroom? near to it.
                            annamalai would be opposite to minerva hall.
                            royal is in the very road where you get tyres - opposite to mrf again, the road adjacent to dunlop.

                              yeah this is what i was saying, once it messes up with the chain then its trouble. for this you can also cut out a rectangular piece from the inside of the chain cover inside of replacing with half cover. a good mechanic can set it up for you well.
                              if you are a tourer then exposing sprocket wouldnt be a good idea.
                              Q120 is a good choice though.
