TIRE TREAD WEAR AND TEAR
Different factors can cause an abnormal tire wear and tear:
Ever since the construction of the first motorcycle, a hundred years ago, special tires for motorcycles have been designed. The development of tires has been remarkable through the decades. We have several types of tires available, which differ according to their basic construction as well as their appearance. The appearance and the construction depend on the motorcycle type. Irrespective of the fact whether it is about scooter, enduro or road tires, they all have the following parts in common:
TIRE CONSTRUCTION TYPE
With regard to the carcass type, tires can be divided in the following categories:
The speed index marks the highest allowable speed of a tire with loads specified in the load index, and in driving conditions as defined by MITAS.
Speeds are listed on www.mitas-moto.com and apply to tires in good condition, properly inflated, with permissible specific load and mounted on suitable rims. The speeds listed in the table are the highest permissible speeds and should not be considered as the ordinary speeds.
The load index is the numerical code, which stands for the highest tire load allowed (except for loads at speeds over 210 km/h) at speeds marked with the speed index in the driving conditions as specified by MITAS. The loads are listed on www.mitas-moto.com. Worn-out tires are replaced, make sure that the new tires are of the exactly the same or higher speed index and of load index as specified by the motorcycle manufacturer.
Mitas wishes you a pleasant, safe and comfortable ride with your motorcycle.
