No ra­di­als

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Fettling -

Q I am restor­ing my 1986 BMW K75S. Among sev­eral other im­prove­ments, I have fit­ted the later K Se­ries three­spoke BMW wheels and I’d like to fit some ra­dial tyres. I cur­rently have Miche­lin Pi­lot Ac­tivs fit­ted. What ra­di­als and sizes would you rec­om­mend? I don’t want a wider rear tyre. Front tyre width clear­ance is not a prob­lem. Paul Payn­ter, email

A Paul Fair­clough says:

There is no cur­rent ra­dial suit­able. I would rec­om­mend Bridge­stone BT45S. Although not ra­di­als they’e avail­able in the right sizes and work well on older BMWS. We can sup­ply a pair at £169 mail or­der.

Want ra­di­als? You can’t have ’em
