Michelins(m45?), FKR, TVS jumbo 120/80 are all good enough. The former are uber cool but expensive. FKR and TVS are good enough for all kinda broken roads, lotsa touring and water(FKR better puncture resistant). Else for regular city use, zappers would do as well. 30k is enough time to change BOTH!!

MRF anyday.

After 35000 Kms I changed my Fierro's rear tyre to MRF. Costed about 900-1000Rs (including tube). Now my odometer reads 47000Kms, not even one puncture after the tyre chanage

The Stock size for Fiero F2 is 3.00-18. So if you want to stick to stock tyre size ,try tyres in 3.00-18 range. You will get lot of choices from MRF,Dunlop etc. Another option is to try 100/90-18 size. Mrf Zapper & Dunlop Geocruiser are good tyresin that size . Price range is around 900-1000 with tubes.
Bigger size like 120/80 are available, but you mave to remove the chain cover to fix the tyres as they may foul with tyres.

My experiance with Dunlop Geocruiser was not that greate (I had a 100/90 - 18 on my GF170). It never inspired confidence be it dry or wet. I haven't used the Zapper but I have heard that its not that good in wet.

I latter swithed to 3.5"-18 CEAT Secura and they were very good in wet.

Default Rear tyre

Try Zapper Q. Its got a unique tread pattern. Works in the rains. Is much better than the stock Zappers.

you can try the 100x or if you want the 120x

Thanks all. I've decided to go for MRF Zapper Q series 100/90-18 tyre. Can anybody give me authorised dealers in Bangalore or any best tyre dealers. I stay in Rajajinagar and anywhere close to this area would be of much help.

Just enquired at Viharis Tyres,Malleshwaram and they are quoting 1250/- for MRF Zapper Q for rear tyre. No other tyre dealer which i enquired has Zapper Q. Iyengar Tyre,Rajajinagar said Zapper C available at 1050/-. Which shall i choose? Are the prices ok?

Rs1250 for 100/90-18 Zapper Q seems right. Go for it.
