Default New tyres for my fiero F2!!!

HI,
I've a TVS Fiero F2 (Disc ) version and its now 3.5 yrs old. During rainy days and muddy roads the tyres when braked skids. I'm still using the stock tyres given by the company itself. I'm planning to change the back tyre (as i've no probs from front tyre). So plz help me to choose a tyre which suits the vehicle as well give grip during rainy days and muddy roads. It should not alter mileage which is very good(50 Kmpl) and handling. Thanks in advance.

u can fit TVS jumo tyre 120mm or 100 mm in ur Fiero F2. I have fitted 120mm in My Fiero Fx. It will give good grip and great confidence while riding.

I fitted MRF Zapper Q 100/90 tyres onto my F2. They do the job pretty well...mrf Zapper Q is much better than the tyres the stock tyres from TVS....

I have zapper q 90/90 at the rear and zapper fv upfront.The grip is really good on roads but bad on wet and somewhat decent on mud roads.
For mud roads i prefer ceat secura or mrf moto series tyres,but again these are not good on wet roads and fitting oversize tyres means milage will take some hit and you will have to remove the chain gaurd.

Hey vivek, How did you fit 100/90 tyres? I fitted 90/90 as i was told that 100/90 cannot be fit on to Fiero f2! Did you remove the chain guard or did you make any adjustments?

Ramki.

Please suggest me a good front tyre for my Fiero F2 as its almost bald, having replaced my rear tyre i would also be replacing my front stock tyre after 45Kms. Bridgestone, MRF and then Michelin as the line of my preference.. Which model, size, company tyres should i go for?

Thanks,
Ramki

Ramki don't go for 100/90 it would be overkill for your bike Pm Sandeep K ram he has a 90/90 mrf tyre on his RXZ he will help you out. for front mrf zapper fs 2.75 x 18 would be the best.

Thanks prajeep. I did fit MRF Zapper Q series 90/90 for the rear. Its fantantic!!!
I shall take your suggestion on front tyre. Would Zapper 3.00x18 be too much for the front?

Thanks,
Ramki.

Yes a 3.00 will be too much for the front. Go for a Zapper FS 2.75x18 for the front.

I have a Fiero F2 March 2004 model. Front tyre not yet worn out after 4.5 years of use. The stock 90/90/18" tyre wore out in 20K kms(approx.2yrs.).I went for the Dunlop GeoCruiser 100/90/18" tyre which was available on the first CBZ. Excellent tyre, no modification needed. Still showing hardly any signs of wear&tear even after 25K kms of use. You may not get the same tyre now, but you can consider any other 100/90/18" like the CBZ Xtreme's tyre. Mileage may drop by upto 2kmpl.as in my case.
