New tires
« on: June 11, 2017, 07:14:15 PM »
Well my used 2014 700i I noticed the side wall on my rear was patched on the sidewall and is leaking. Also front right is worn really bad. Thinking all new tires I guess which sucks as the other two are fine.

They are maxxis and I can't find the same ones so I can't just replace the two so looks like I'll just replace them all.

Any suggestions? I don't want to pay too much.

I found good prices on SunF tires both on e-bay & amazon, they have several different tire patterns, I got this set of street tread for $255 shipped,  every other street tread tire was at least 75% more

Yeah thanks, I just went with the same brand SunF and got the All Terrain for 245 out the door.  Bought a tire changer from harbor freight so looking to do it myself.  Haven't done it yet but I feel confident lol.

    Good looking tread pattern on those offroad tires, are they 6ply?  What about the weight of the tires? The big horn impressed me as they were the lightest weight 6 ply tire out there. But if only a couple pounds than that wouldn't mean much.

my  new tires are much quieter and smoother on the road, they also handle the corners much better on pavement

Looks good!  I just got mine done yesterday, much better.  Sucks one of the rubber covers for the axle nut is missing.  Probably damn near impossible to find one.

I still have the rubber covers, but the centers of the Yamaha wheels are smaller diameter and do not fit on the wheels that are currently on my 450i
