Tyres

Postby DapperDan » Wed Sep 21, 2016 11:04 am

Having noticed a slight side to side wobble in the handlebars and finding a bulge in my rear tyre as the culprit Im gonna replace all 3 with new. So, being on a budget an all I noticed beedies do 3 performer tyres for just over 60 quid and Im tempted to try them.
I read somewhere that they are a soft compound tyre and wear pretty quickly but at that price they look a good option. Being SIP brand I can't see them being too bad. Cheap doesn't always mean crap.

Anyone used them?

No, but keep me posted on if they're any good. Running the stock tyres at the moment but fancy some a bit grippy for the winter. Do they make winter tyres in our size?

I've used them. I got on great with them (mostly dry weather).Soft compound, expect 2-3000 miles wear on a rear tyre.I'd recommend them.Cheers

Thanks Nick, gonna bite the bullet and order 2 sets. Which such poor wear and all year round riding it makes sense to have 3 pairs.

Cheap though and as Nick says, he got on great with them. Good enough for me.
