  • Bad Grip!?? New Tires......

    just replaced my tires with vredestein wintrac extreme's for the winter as my conti's were useless even slippin in 4th!!!

    OMG! any1 thinkin of it i would advise to do so!

    the grip is unbelievable feels like i got new suspension ha

    spin slightly in 1st (runnin stage 2 so not surprised) but all the rest of the gears are so smooth and just pure acceleration!!

    Recommended!!

        115 each from www.mytyres.co.uk, cheap compared to conti's!!!

        they looks sexy too, same tread as the F1 wet tyres, W tread!

          if you had put new contis on they would feel great too. You always get poor grip from tyres when only about 3mm has worn off so no surprise when a tyre change makes it grippy again.

                    I just bought 2 Eagle F1's and am very impressed. They'd needa be good cause they weren't cheap. Last set I'll buy regardless of grip I think unless I get promoted soon.

                      agree that tbh. Tyres always seem to be the best when they first on, its how they behave after a few k's that makes the difference

                        swell I am confused now, got 2 new contis today exactly the same as the worn out ones and I slid all the way home. Just hope it is down to too much air in them. Will look in the daylight tomorrow

                          hopefully the rubber hasnt gone off. Garages normally only have them for a max of three years on the shelf. Due to the rubber going off, bike peoples will know all about that
