Tyre Choice

Postby saltyseal » Tue Jan 10, 2017 2:14 am

Hi All.
I am just about to put a newly built combo on the road, and will need new tyres before I do.
I have a 1991 BMW R80S (NZ spec) with a Velorex 700 attached.
Suggestions on which tyres to chose (and pros/cons) would be greatly appreciated.
I would prefer a slightly trail oriented tyre, as the roads here can be a little "challenging" when off the beaten track in rural Taranaki.
Cheers

Hi, welcome

I have no advice, it is too long since I had a combo but would like to see a picture of your outfit.

Hi and welcome,
I run an outfit here in the UK but with road tyres. I would think most UK outfits are on road tyres as off-road opportunities are not so easily come by here.
If you search on this forum

http://advrider.com/index.php?forums/hacks.56/

You will find any amount of information on tyres etc. A lot of the posters are from Australia/America and have a lot of experience in off road and desert rigs etc.
Good luck with your outfit,

Thanks both.
Will put up some pics when it looks a little more photogenic. Still in the build stage yet.
Cheers
