The Czech tyre producer Mitas is voluntarily recalling 1,752 tubeless E-07 motorcycle tyres from the market. These tyres were sold to customers mostly in Europe. The tyre sizes subject to recall are:...

Spot on! Tyre sizes, like dress sizes (I imagine :augie) are nominal, which basically means each manufacturer can call it whatever they want. Presumably there is some kind of check during the...

There is very little difference between a 150/70 and a 140/80, even theoretically. In fact theoretically, the 140 is the bigger tyre.

In real life some manufacturers might even use the same...

One good dealer that supports our tyres, stocks them, recommends them and sells them can eclipse all of our online sales. It's that clear. MOST riders don't buy tyres on the internet, MOST of them go...

Very few, I can't deny it. Probably less than 50 at this stage, and many of those would only carry a couple of the more common Stonekings for example. But that's a lot more than it was even a year...

We've been told that there are some new sizes awaiting homologation, so we're hopeful that there will be some fatter 18's to come. We do harrass them regularly for certain sizes so they are in no...

It's not that we aren't listening, it just isn't viable to do it at this time. Online sales keeps a small number of riders happy, but it threatens the livelihood of (and really annoys) retailers and...

G'day Lentil,

I've just spoken to Sam at Gordon Turner Motorcycles and he's told me he'll be happy to get Mitas in for you. Bikes And Bits in Tamworth get a few tyres every month, and I recently...

Firstly, nothing is being superceded - the E-09, E-09 Dakar (which we've taken to calling the E-09D) and the...

Mitas E-10 available in Australia

G'day ladies and gents, just a quick line to let you know that the long-awaited E-10 has arrived on Australian shores in BMW sizes, 150/70B17 and 110/80B19. Mitas describes it as a 50/50 road/offroad...

Looks similar, but unlikely to be the same tyre, as I don't think there are any friendly links between Mitas and Metzeler.

Perhaps we have yet to see the 'big name' version hit the market, which...

If you mean the 'green' tyre laws it's possible, but I doubt it. My guess is that Mitas would have been all over that quite early. I'd say it was more likely to be something like a contractual...

None yet. There has been precious little info on the E-10, even though they are apparently now shipping. They won't even tell us if the compound is the same as that used in other Mitas tyres, so we...

Hi guys, just a couple of comments re Mitas tyres.

The E-07 is a hard compound tyre, meaning that milage is superb but it won't be the stickiest. It's an 'allrounder' pattern and will perform...
