Question What tyres for a Honda Activa?

I've a Honda Activa (2003) with Stock MRF in front & CEAT Secura Neo at the back. I am thinking of changing the front tyre since its quite old & the rubber is also very hard.

I had bought CEAT Secura Neo ~1.5 years ago for my rear tyre. Rear tyre has been changed 2-3 times over the years but never the front tyre. Thinking of moving the rear tyre to the front & get a new tyre for rear wheel.

Zeroed in on Ceat Gripp & Secura Neo. Which one is better for rear wheel of Honda Activa?

Default Re: What tyres for a Honda Activa?

FYI, you can install tubeless valve and a tubeless tyre on it for better safety.
if the tyrewala says, Activa can not take tubeless tyres or tubeless tyres are not as good as tube-type tyres, go to another tyre shop.
You can find many threads on tubeless vs tube-type here.

Reviving an old thread.

The tyres of my Activa were already showing signs of going bald and decided to get them changed. Zeroed in on Michelin City Pro tyres for the 90/100 10 53J profile and went to Premji Tyre Plus which was the authorized seller of Michelin in Thane. Opted for the tubeless tyre but when the technicians were checking the rims, they found spots of rust around the tube valve and on the rim. I was advised not to go for the tubeless tyre as there would be no guarantee that the air would not leak. I was suggested to use the Tube type tyre of the same model which I agreed to. Costed Rs 1300 per tyre including the fitting charges.

Post the replacement, the ride felt very light, the road grip is good. First hand experienced the ride in the rains and the tyres held the grip. Very early to comment on the performance, will update in due course of time.
