GUIDE TO BUYING TYRES

CHOOSING THE RIGHT TYRES

There’s more to buying tyres than simply going to your dealer and picking them off the rack. Here are some of the things you should think about in advance:

When selecting new Dunlop motorcycle tyres, be sure they meet the requirements of your motorcycle and its expected usage.

The Dunlop Fitment Guide gives an overview of all tyres that are suitable for your motorcycle, but deciding which one is best for you depends on a number of factors.

The weather

The climate where you live will be a factor. 

How you ride

Do you do a lot of miles, or do you like to push your motorcycle's capabilities from time to time? Take a look at our tyres’ performance characteristics to help you find a tyre that suits your style of riding.

Your motorcycle

The tyres that come with your motorcycle (also known as OE - original equipment tyres) are selected because they’re well suited to your motorcycle, but that doesn’t mean they’re necessarily the best ones for you. Check your manual for other recommendations, or do some further research yourself.

For the makes and models not covered by the Dunlop Fitment Guide, contact Dunlop before tyres are fitted.

Fitment of radial tyres to the wrong vehicle can cause instability and accidents.

Some motorcycles may be fitted only with radial tyres.

Consult motorcycle manufacturer before fitting radial replacements to ensure you are applying the correct specification and combination for your motorcycle.

Some motorcycles may be fitted only with tyres that match original equipment. 

Comply with the motorcycle owner’s manual recommendations.
