Tyres

Hi All,

In the market for new tyres, am thinking Bridgestone S20 evo.

Just wondered if anyone else has them fitted?

Also am thinking of getting 190/55 anyone else use this size instead?

Thanks

Dave

S21's are out and supposed to be better than the S20 EVO for grip and wear. I have a set on the shelf waiting to be put on.

Don't forget the 55 throws out the gearing, so if you wish to retain the same urgency from standstill you'll need to add a tooth or two to the rear sprocket.

The stockers don't seem to fair well at all, eh? MAybe Suzuki realised that lots of people change the stock tyres quickly anyway, so thought they'd help their customers along?

If you have a bigger wheel to turn you would need a bigger rear cog to turn it, however I didn't think changing from 50 to 55 would do that much, I've always replaced like for like.
