Renewal

Hi,

This question is for the Dunlop expert, when renewing tyres should it be done as a pair. Forgive my ignorance I'm returned to biking after 26 yrs and tyres have changed alot in this period. I currently ride a Street Triple with Dunlop Qualifiers.

Thanks

Triple1.

Hiya,

Whilst I'm not the Dunlop expert, it has been my experience that usually the front will last the lifetime of 2 rears.  Therefore, whilst you should use the same make/model of tyre both front and rear, you only need to replace them as per their wear rate.

Please feel free to correct any errors on my part, Mr Dunlop.

Hi mrt502,

Thanks for your input, I sort of thought that might be the case, the front is wearing alot slower than the rear.

Cheers
