Why You Need to Choose the Right Tyres for Your Bike

Whether you commute to work, cruise through the countryside on Sundays, are into off-road adventures or have plans for a lengthy touring trip, choosing the right tyres for your bike is vital. Tyres play an important role in the way your bike performs, so it’s essential to not leave anything to chance and have the motorcycle experts at D&C Motorcycles help you choose the right tyres for your bike.

What Tyres Do

Although the tyres on your bike are only ever in contact with a tiny area of the road surface, an area only slightly larger than an ATM card, they perform a variety of important roles that include:

  • Carry the weight of the vehicle in addition to the weight of the rider and pillion passenger
  • Absorb irregularities, like bumps and holes, in the surface of the road
  • Provide grip while driving on dry, wet and even loose surfaces
  • Enable efficient acceleration, braking and handling/steering

But that’s not all that they do, as your tyres also affect mileage and your comfort while riding on the road and off, not to mention enable you to respond quickly to hazards and obstacles. That means they’re an important safety feature of your scooter or motorcycle and need to be selected carefully.
