Default Go for 130/140

For Pulsar i would suggest you 130/140 if you want your bike to rule in looks..... and if you want to be better go for imported tyres like Barracuda 130 or 140 that would be expnsive.... going upto 3k...

you should get it for around 2500-3000. im not sure where in chennai you can get it but any good tyre dealer should have it.

also i would not suggest anything more than 120 mm unless your changing your tyres for looks if your changing it for grip and performance than 110 is fine 120 is also permissible.

the wider the tyre the lesser performance and mileage you will get.

Go in for the michelin M45. Its a good tyre, lasts long,and Is a direct fit for Pulsars. You could order the tyres from KRP in delhi and they will ship it to you. Should cost u Around RS 2500.

100/90 would do great....Best tyre, and great grip if you fix a good one...Even a Dunlop provides good traction.

can i suggest continental - navigator? i got my rear tyre replaced a couple of months back at the shop on whites road, royapettah. its right next to the TVS sundaram showroom on the same road.

been running those for the last 5k kms...... very good grip. goes to show how crappy the OEM tyres were. i dont remember the size. but they dont too oversized. its just about a tad bit bigger than what came on the classic pulsar 180. this tyre costed me 1200 with tube and installation.

i would definitely recommend them. tenacious grip. and pick-up/mileage hasn't dropped much.... mayb by 1/2 kms a litre.

CEAT Secura Sports 3.5-18 will be excellent for mix of good and bad roads. Also they have very good grip in wet:

Hi venkat,

you can try Dunlop Geo-Cruiser's. I doubt if any Indian tyre can out run this one in terms of performance. I have it on my 99 CBZ and trust me I sleep on the corners!!

Grip of the tyre in the wet is also amazing.

Cheers
Shrey
