Tyres - Advice Please
I am currently running Continental TKC´s on my 1150 GS, having replaced the rear but not the front 5,000+kms ago. The front is now pretty worn, although the rear has plenty of wear left in it.
I am in Quito at the moment waiting for some repairs to my bike and thought I would change the front, only no knobblies available, only Metzeler Tourance or the cheaper Dunlop equivalent.
So my question is, would I be better off carrying as I am, until trying to change them in Medellin or Bogota OR should I change both now, here in Quito OR is it even possible to get the Metzeler Tourance for the front and carry on with the knobbly Continental TKC on the back?
I can´t seem to get a straight answer from the tyre dealers here, so any impartial advice would be gratefully received.
