Tyre thread.

This isn't one. My laptop is broken, I need to find some tyre recommendations, and the search function on the mobile app sucks. Could someone do me a massive favour and link me a couple of the Bonneville tyre threads? I'd appreciate it! Thanks!

My OEM front Metz is dry rotted
4 yrs old with less than 6K miles.

Pretty piss poor IMO !

Replacing with Avons that seem to be well regarded on these forums for performance and good wear.

What I've gleaned from personal experience plus what I've learned from reading way too many tyre threads: Avon Roadriders work pretty damn good and wear well (10,000 miles and the rear is done but not yet dangerous, front still okay...), Pirelli Sport Demons if you must have the stickiest rubber. I'm trying the Pirellis in the Spring but I'll be disappointed if I don't get a full season out of them. We'll see.

Demonic, I guess you're wanting a good rain tyre...

Thanks, guys, I appreciate it. I've got Avons, but they are starting to perish. Possibly my fault for buying them "on the cheap" from Ebay. No idea how long they were sitting on the shelf before I got them....

And yeah, main issue is grip in the wet. I ride year round, and in the UK that means it's mostly through rain...
