Q I want CBR300R tyres that don’t fold the front

Motorcycle News (UK) - - MCN Garage -

I have a Honda CBR300R and I’m con­sid­er­ing chang­ing the IRC tyres as they are use­less in the wet and the front doesn’t in­spire any con­fi­dence. In some corners I feel like the front is go­ing away from me and have to lift the bike up. What should I fit? Robin Coul­ter, email

An­swered by Bryn Phillips, Cam­brian Tyres Al­though the CBR300R comes with bias-ply (aka cross-ply) tyres as orig­i­nal equip­ment there are sev­eral very good, higher-per­form­ing ra­dial al­ter­na­tives these days and what might sur­prise you is that some of them are cheaper than the bias-ply tyres. In the 110/70 R17 and 140/70 R17 sizes Bridge­stone make their S20 EVO, which is very good in wet con­di­tions, Con­ti­nen­tal make their very high-per­for­mance At­tack SM, Miche­lin make their Pi­lot Street Ra­dial, which is dif­fer­ent to their stan­dard Pi­lot Street, and Pirelli have their Di­ablo Rosso II.

Your 300 has plenty of tyre op­tions
