I'm new and I see peeps changing their tires on this forum around 5000 miles or so . Maybe a stupid question but how do you tell? Obviously if you don't ride much and have some dry rot goin' on would be definitely a good time to change. Is there a typical measurement of tread showing that will tell me when it's time to change?Hey Dave. If you look at your tires between the treads there are little raised tread wear indicators. When the tread wears down far enough to make those indicators touch the road it is about time. The exception this is the Metzler Z6, the tread wear indicators are really tough to find on those. You will find that mileage will vary greatly. I seem to get about 3000 miles out of Sport tires and was only getting abut 4000 or so out of sport touring tires. Some guys here seem to get double that or more. I think that mileage will be dictated by terrain you ride, the pavement type (very course here) and your right hand.,,,

Replace rear tire


Hi James
Yes you can replace the rear tire, just follow the steps in the bike owners manual or buy a service manual. After the tire is off if you are not comfortable removing and replacing the tire from the rim you can take it to a bike shop and they will change it for you. I hope this helps. Rod

Tyre pressures for a 175/65R14 tyre


Hi, sorry to say but there is no standard pressure for a tire size. It depends on make, load, tire type i.e. radial or crossply, tubed or tubeless. My Suzuki rear tire original Dunlop radial 36psi. changed to a Bridgestone same size 39psi. I would check with the tire manufacturer, if you run the tire over or under inflated you risk damaging the tire, poor grip and stability.

Hi I have a Mazda 6 2013 with after market rims 19x8.5 fitted with Pirelli P 1's cinturato size tyre 245x40x19,what is the correct tyre pressure? Same alround or diffa front and back,original rims factory...


The factory tires said 33 psi. So put 33 psi in all four tires. But if you changed the tires with different tires I would put the psi it says on the tire andthe new tire gives you a different psi than the factory tires I would follow what the tire says check the tire and fill it all up with the same pressure but do t go over the maximum psi you need to be 5 psi below the max.
