Some of the contents in this post is being duplicated for logging, from my dedicated query thread for Panther Pacer, here: https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/bikes-3-wheelers/246718-panther-pacer-tyre-query-cg125-3-00-17-a
My main route for Inter City Travel is "A Road", and a high speed one for that matter i.e. Canal Road. I wanted a product with focus on "Road" first, while still maintaining the Off Road capability. I am pretty sure i have made the right choice by choosing Panther Pacer.
Bought the tyre today, at 30th December 2014. Here are a few pictures:
It was a lot different than I imagined it'd be. You can compare my pics with the one on their website (or posted a few posts before). I thought it'd be flatter and less round.
- The tread pattern is directional, meaning you can't put it both ways like you can with Panther Power. Hopefully it'll decrease the rolling resistance, hence better road grip and increase fuel mileage.
- The big block design will hopefully not screw with tyre's off road capability.
Once the running period is over, which would be nearly 100 kilometers or more (yes tyres have a running period), tyre's actual 'kartoot' will start to show. I'll share my experience here.
I will post more clear pictures with tyre fitted, tomorrow, InShaALLAH. Will also include the older tyre's photos, to show the kind of screw ups Puncture Walas had done with it :S
