Tire is one of the most important parts from the motorcycle, so today I want to show you a few info about choosing the right tires for our motorcycles. As one of Kawasaki Ninja riders, I thing that choosing the right tire for my Ninja is so hard, I'm not the expert about the tires type but today I found the great articles from ninja250.org site which it shown many information about the tire, I will show you about it at the end of this article.
Performance or style? smart modifications for all riders
Let's take an example, I believe that many of Ninja 250R felt confused when they trying to choose the right (perfect) tires for their bikes and as usual I found 2 points about it, the point are "choosing the large tire", or the "standard" even the "smaller tire size", So which is the best Ninja 250R tires size for us?. Well, when you choose the large tire for your Ninja 250 motorcycles (also for other type), the performance of your bike may dropped and less than standard performance, but you will get better appearance and better style, so the key points from large tire type are better style, better handling, better cornering and safety ( please consider about your rims size and don't try to use the extreme tire size yor your bike!!!).
What about choosing the small tire size? I don't recommend to use it? it's danger for beginner riders, yes of course, if we use a tire with small size, the ability of the tire grip will be reduced, it would be dangerous for safety!!, and the most important is the ability of our brakes will go worse!!. So what is the benefit from choosing a smaller tire size than standard tire size?, well the acceleration of our bikes will better, it's because the weight of small tire has lighter and the total motorcycle weight will be lighter, see it?.
