Hi all

I need a new set of tyres on my 89 kr1, I was just wondering which tyres people prefer? Best quality for price etc?

Thanks callum

I Always use black round ones, don't want anything else [-X
You know it's cold outside when you trip over dog shit instead of standing in it.

Callum some good old threads on this dilemma just search in steering and suspension under Tyre choice

Been looking at these Bridgestone BT090 PRO tyres, just wondered if anyone had used them or know anything about them

Daz,

BT90's are ace. I have had them on most of my KR1/S's and they stick like s**t to a blanket.

Cheers

Andrew
