Hey guys...sorry been away for a while. Was extremely busy and fed up with work.
Anyway...back to the topic, I haven't changed my tires yet, simply no time at all. I saw some of your comments regarding which tire to choose and yes i agree that tires are tightly related to purpose. So, I'm still not sure 100% whether I should pay extra and get some radials, or keep to my previous choice the bias plys branded "corsa".
I should say that yes the radials are lighter, but strangely feel heavier in cornering. I cant explain why but i havent found any confidence in my current battlax bt92 tires. Everytime i meet a corner i have doubt on speed and approach. The oem tires, even some people say slip a lot, had brought me more confidence. I'm pretty sure it has to do with the size i choose and the characteristics of the bt92s as well, and i might be wrong that this is radial related.
Anyway, i have found some michellin tires here in indonesia, not cheap to ship to my place but it is an alternative i guess. Anyway, i had a discussion with the supplier, and he suggested that the pilot streets are not really recommended since they are not grippy enough (strange comming from the supplier). Anyway some people i know said the same thing hence bringing me back to square 1.
I am thinking that bias or radial has nothing to do with quality for grip. A good bias tire could be much better compared to a not too good developed radial tire.
Anyway, I'm starting to feel the roughness of the road on the steering. Im guessing i dont have much time left to decide before the tires become undriveable. Hahha.
Any further comments or input would be appreciated.
