Hi everybody,how u doing.
My Yamaha Junoon came with Panther 2.50-18 4PR stock rear tyre. Front wheel has same tyre too and for a drum brake, it provides enought braking power at the front.
But i am not satisfied with its grip at the rear. It skids too easily.
So i tried a bigger tyre "Panther 3.00-18 6PR", but result was worst this tyre used to skid even more than 2.50-18 4PR. All it did was a little decrease in acceleration and increased fuel consumption, reduced around 5Km/L with this tyre. The tyre with its tube was quite heavy as compared to stock one.
Anyway , i just put the stock tyre back on.
Now i want a tyre with excellent grip but not too big in size ( as size doesn't always matter as i experienced).
Kindly tell me some good options in 2.50/2.75 size. 3.00 is probably a little too much for Junoon.
Below are the pics of stock and upgraded one
