Which tyres will turn my FZ1 into a tourer?
I have a 2008 Yamaha FZ1 and the rear tyre needs replacing. I am doing a ride around Europe soon and will cover around 3000 miles. What’s the best rubber for the job? Graham, Slough
Answered by Bryn Phillips, Cambrian Tyres This may sound like a simple answer, but the best tyre to fit is the matching tyre to your existing front. By doing that (and assuming it has been tested and approved for fitment by the tyre manufacturer) you will ensure optimum stability and handling whilst on your trip. Fit a different type or make of tyre and these performance criteria could suffer.
Match your rear to the front tyre
