      Post New tyres for pulsar 150 dtsi

      Hi Guys,

      I want to change my Pulsar 150cc tyres (2007 model). Its tyre sizes are :Tyre

      Front
      Tube-type - 2.75 x 17"


      Rear
      Tube-type - 100 / 90 x 17"

      I want some good tyres which have a nice grip and long lasting. also my alloys, they are bit out of shape and cause wobbling, Can they be fixed? or have to go for new ones?

      please suggest me some good tyres (medium cost). I do drive at around 65-75 kph.

      Why don't you try the MRF zapper. My experience on that was good till date. Try to get some more info on other tires.

      I would prefer to go for a new alloy rather than fixing it. If it is a minor one then you can get it fixed but more than that I would prefer to change

      Same as above. I got that for almost 50k kms on my 2005 P150

      Thanks Shishir for the reply. As of now, I also have MRF Zapper and done almost 45k kms.
      Regarding alloy, there is minor defect, but i spoke to service person and he says that alloys can't be fixed. Not sure whether he is saying right or just to make money.

      AFAIK, alloys cannot be fixed for major issues. But there are people who will do for minor ones. But then the reliability question arises. Hence I would always recommend to change the alloys.

      The SA is correct in what ever he said.

      If you can get Michelin M45s in that size, go for it. Excellent Grip and nice tyre pattern as well . Costs the same as the MRFs.

      To add more confusion do check the CEAT models in that size. Nothing can beat them in terms of grip and it is highly advised if you are using it extensively on wet/off road conditions. AS suggested by Shishir and KRRaj MRF is good and Michelin is best

      Things that you may need to keep in mind:
      Tyre size: that means if you are upsizing tyre shouldn't be bigger or smaller than your rim size.
      Treads: Wet grip and dry grip differ from tyre to tyre. If you are driving mostly off road then grip comes different if you are driving mostly in city dry condition grip differs if you are driiving in city wet conditions mostly grip differes if city wet and dry conditions are balanced or normal grip differs.

      Front and rear tyre have different set of grips treads. More the tread is deeper much better it has wet grip but that necessarily wont have a that much good dry grip.
      I have used differebt brands as:

      1. MRF: Stock tyres 2.75F, 100/90 R17
      2. Pirelli: Pilot Sporty Demon130/80 R17 (Tubeless)
      3. Ceat: Vertigo 110/90 R17 (Tubeless)
      4. Micheelin: Pilot Sporty 2.75F, 100/90 R17
      5. Dunlop: Tuff Grip 120/90 R 17

      Amongst this all I found pirelli to be most satisfying and then Dunlop.

      Recently I changed my rear tyre of P150 to Michelin Sirac Street - has good grip due to tread pattern, have more confidence in cornering. MRF Zapper is also good (my stock tyre lasted for 35k). If MRF, see if you can get the Zapper Q series, which has a good tread pattern.
