Default Tyres for Victy!!

Hello People,

The existing tyres in my Victor GL (2002 model - which came with a very bad set of tyres ) have worn out.Please suggest a good tyre brand and what is the Profile i need to go for?

My priority is the tyre must give a good road grip and nice ride comfort.When i went to enquire dealer suggessted to use MRF instead of CEAT/TVS tyres.Is that good,are there any specific model in MRF that i should look for?

MRF Zappers are pretty good for riding at moderate speeds, and good VFM too. Not very confidence-inspiring in the rain, very good in the dry.

Try out the Zapper C. I think the size should be 2.75 in the front, and 3.00 in the rear. Do victors run 17 or 18 inch tyres?

I will recommend Dunlop Geocruisers as they are realitvely softer & have better grip than the Zappers This is my experience of using both tyres on a Pulsar..

The Geo is 100\90 I am not sure if it comes in 3.00 size
