Tiger 800 XCX Tyres?
« on: December 22, 2018, 09:11:17 PM »
Hi

I have a 2017 model and I am wondering if I need tubeless or tubed tyres on it. It has spoked wheels and was purchased May 2017.

Many thanks

Derek

Ho Derek,

Tubed tyres for you my friend. Plenty of choice there. How are you going to ride it?

Road use, or more off road?

I do both, use Contis TKC 70s. Great on tarmac and quite good off road, but not too wild.

Cheers,

Dennis

Many thanks Dennis for the reply. I am thinking of putting Heidenau Scout K60 on my bike. I see they only do the rear tyre in a tubeless version. Can these be fitted safety to a spoked wheel with a tube.

Youre right about the rear tubeless. However its no problem to install a tubeless tyre and use a tube in it anyway.
Ive had the K60 Skouts too. Good tyre.
Both last quite long.
The wet grip is the reason I choose the Contis in the end.

Anyway enjoy the ride Derek.

Try MotoZ Tractionator GPS. Tried it on my last Africa's trip and really liked it. Same lasting, better off, better on. Only fault is little noisy. Before that, K60 was my all-terrain favourite tyres, buy now it's MotoZ.



The rear tyre can't be mount in two ways, for more off or more on riding, which is a plus, because on long trips, you can turn the tyre when arriving to the brown part.
