    MRF Masseter range is very good with wet grip but what about durability ? Since my brothers job (Civil Engg) is around construction sites and roads leading to them are almost non existent.. i dont think Masseter would be a good choice.
    So i have very few options of CEAT and MRF.
    For bad roads or non existent roads, use MRF Meteor /Meteor M, I've been using meteor happily on my 220. Before this I had RevZ S, it had phenomenal grip but I'm off-road and wet slush, it slips, you need chunky blocks for that. So my cousin whose annual pilgrimage is Leh Ladakh recommended me this.

    I do bad roads often and Masseter has been very good for me, although grip on slush is not the best I would say.

    Go for MRF Masseter 80/90-17 (yes 80/90) and MRF Masseter 100/90-17.

    The grip is phenomenal. Especially wet grip is something you'll never miss on these tyres, they grip like leech on wet tarmac. Goodluck.

    Zoom is good series from ceat slightly better than mrf but like mrf wet grip is no lower side not as bad as mrf.
    You can also explore Apollo actigrip series.

    Bro if stock size is preferred,then try mrf masseter.they are bit hard to get from dealers as they dont stock them.ultimately you can call mrf customer care and tell them you need those tyres.they will arrange for you.i also got mine for my pulsar 220,in this way.

    These are good tyres grip is good,weather on dry or wet.i am using them,dint found any problems.and braking has impoved a lot.
    This is for rear tyre.

    Look for metzeller sportec street and Michelin pilot sport street in 140/70-17 or 150/60-17 size for rear and 110/70-17 for front, will work best for your usage pattern, and good life too, 20-22k kms easily, the metzeller streets are around ₹ 9k and Michelin streets around ₹ 11k.

    Posted this on FZ25 thread, reposting it here since it's related to tyres.

    Hi,
    After 2.5 years and about 17.5K KMs on stock tyres, I am looking to change my tyres. Main reason is that the bike is not stable under hard braking. My usage is strictly commuting with one or two long distance ride (~500KM round trip) a year. I am not looking to upgrade the tyres as I feed the stock size is adequate for the power on offer.
    If budget is not a concern and if I expect at least 15K mileage out the pair,
    1. What are my options if I am going for stock size?
    2. Is it advisable to downgrade the rear?
    3. Post changing the tyres, anything else that I would need to perform
    4. And finally, any suggestions for a shop around Salt Lake area in Kolkata would be helpful

    Thank you for your help.
