I know that Pirelli and Metzler have good suppliers here , also that Bridgestone seem to have wide distibution , but what other choices you may ask.....

Michelin are available but distribution is patchy ,Pilot sport , pilot power and off road tyres available

well Dunlop also have distribution here although it seems patchy, HD cruiser tyres are well catered for by Dunlop but some Roadsmarts, Sportsmarts and Qualifiers are around and they are very good tyres,

Maxxis also seem to be getting more distribution they are not a bad general use tyre and as they are Korean will probably challenge the big boys technology soon .

Some cruiser and chopper shops have stocks of AVON cruiser tyres due to AVON making large 200-300mm tyres for that market but AVON 's excellent other road and sport bike products are not available here .

Continental dont seem to be available at all ????

Please add any info you have to this list

Re: Tyres makes available in Thailand

Ive been using Contintental TKC 80's on adventure bikes that do a lot of dirt. They are without doubt the best 50/50 adventure tire available in Thailand.


Big Bendum can get the Contintental TKC 80's in Bangkok and overnight them to Chiang Mai for around 5,000 bht in total for a 140X18 rear

Big Bendums number is 089 111 5962 ask for Piroj ("pilot")



If you do 80% tarmac and 20% dirt then go for pirelli scorpion MT 90.

Re: Tyres makes available in Thailand

We had a guy stop by on a Kawasaki Versys who had Pirelli Scorpion MT60 tires, the tread pattern looks quite similar to the Dunlop 605 tires that fit the Kawasaki KLX 250 for dual sport use.


They look quite interesting as they have a more aggressive off road tread pattern than the MT 90's

Brit bike Chiang Mai are fitting a set of Avon Sport Rider tyres to my Thruxton today. Up one size on stock - 140 rear and 110 front.

They get the best reviews for Triumphs classic range but supply seemed very limited, I was lucky to get the ones I got.

The 76 seems to come in super moto sizes but the K60 doesnt have a rear in 17...

Those pirellis you put on will probably be the next tyres on the duke.

Had Anakee 3's on my V-Strom for about 3 months and 3,000 klm's now and I'm pretty happy with them on and off road but they are more on road than off road oriented, excellent in the wet as well. Cockpit at Hangdong for only 9,500TB

I've heard reports of people getting between 12,000 to 20,000 klm's on other V-Stroms and I'm guessing that would depend on road surface, load and how much off road but the way mine are wearing so far probably 15,000 to 18,000 klm's.

Highly impressed with the Michelin Anakee 3 tires. 12,000 km through Siberia, Russia, not one slip in a corner. Still loads of tread left on them, wouldnt surprise me if there was another 10,000 km left in them.

I think this is the Scorpion Rally. Trail is more of a road tyre.

Hi, any one bought TKC 80's recently??

I called Pilot at Big Bendum in Bangkok, but none in stock and he said too long to order.

Cheers.

Have ordered the TKC 80's from Super Continental Moto tires. All done through their FB page, and they are posting to me here in Pattaya.

Pirelli Scorpion 2's now available in Chiang Mai. Ive got 12,000 km on the Michelin Anakee 3's, fantastic tires, with plenty of tread left, but with a 5,000km China ride coming, best to put on some new shoes.






Managed to find some stock of Pirelli Scorpion 2's in Chiang Mai, around 11,000 Bht for a set.

Slightly more aggressive trad pattern than the Anakee 3's
