Any one has photos with the 150 rear? How does it look?
Here is my 150 PR3 shortly after putting it on.

Size looks great! But gosh I hate the PR3 thread pattern. It's like happy new year confetti all over that thing lol

Anyone have photos of the same size but PR2?

Hi Guys

I am getting confused here with all these different tire sizes & brands.

I have a 2013 thruxton that's ready for new Tires, I agree the stock Metz are crap... I was thinking of a 140/80-17 rear but in doing so would I need to go up a size on the front tire


Advice mucho appreciated please

Running pirelli sport demons in stock size on my 2010 thruxton very happy with them . This week in MCN theres an announcement to the effect that Continental now do their Road Attack 2 radials in stock size for our thruxtons .

I've been running the Sport Demons for over 5 years now with the 140/80 x 17 in the rear and the stock size in the front with no problems.

Shouldnt cause any issues at all. General rule of thumb is the narrower the tyre the quicker the turn in. Just replaced my Metz with Sport Demons in stock size. Very impressed

I was thinking of trying the pilot road 3's when my stocks run out...and it won't be much longer. Looking at available sizes:

Rear 150/70 17"
Front 110/80 18"

Is that what would be the 'best' of what is available? And that will fit on the stock rims/tubes (I might try to seal my rims and go without tubes...still deciding).

Sorry to spell it all out...been a while since I went with non-stock tire sizes.

Thanks in advance!
