Hello and welcome and happy new year to you will from Uckfield near Crowborough and in East Sussex and with new Pirelli tyres..... Very Happy


I have not used pirelli since the 80's as they wore out so fast and were expensive but i have heard lots of good things about them.... thing is with a B-king it eats tyres and just don't seem to matter any more I am a Dunlop man now but am looking at continental and pirelli being my next set.... I think most tyres in the ZR ratings are ok for the B-king so alot of it comes down to what you get used to...


anyrate welcome again... I am west side of chichester and ride your way some times on the A272 visiting Ogri's cafe ...... There is quite a few of us on the south of england... we meet up usually fairy frequently for a cuppa or ride.....

we do a twice a year weekend meet, was going to be a rally but the hotel with comfort favoured us older farts... next one is in April in Norfolk.. it is an experience and fun to ride with other kings and some wanna be's... have a look on across the pond threads

Had 190 55 super corsa on for while great tyre
I couldn't find the edge of its grip at all even on track days
Great turn in and last ok
I believe they do a 200 55 now might be worth a look
Happy new year

A new brother in arms! Yay, welcome :wel:


I'm going to get a set Metzelers Sportec M5 (190/55 rear) for mine.

Hi from Sussex M5%20120%20195

Brian said that these disappear very quickly and might need to change sooner that I think, but they're still a good tires to be fit.

This is going to be my first rubber change on the King so I can't tell much about the tires, but once I get the Metz set and spool some miles on them, I'll let everyone know in the tire opinion thread thumbs up 2
