Heidenau Tyres - GERMAN For 2004 Hinkley Bonnie
I think I have messed up big time!
I ordered what I thought was standard K60 tyres front and back. So far so good....
In fact what I ordered was:
1. Front - K60 Silica sio2.
2. Rear - K60 M+S.
It would seem I have in my hands WINTER tyres! What a plonker am I?
I intend to run the tyres in SUMMER!!!!!!!!!!!!
Research has unearthed this data -
For clarity, there seem to be five versions of this tyre:
1 - K60 (general purpose tyre)
2 - K60 Scout (no idea why this is different frrm the K60)
3 - K60 Scout M+S
4 - K60 Scout M+S (aka Silica Sio2) (winter tyre -silica compound- with some snow capability)
5 - K60 Snowtex (dedicated snow tyre with fibres woven into the tread)
QUESTION: DO I FIT THESE TYRES OR NOT? I PRESUME THE COMPOUND MAY BE A BIT SOFT FOR SUMMER RIDING AND THEREFORE THEY WON'T LAST LONG?
Perhaps I should go with standard Bridgestone Battleaxe's (BT45)? If so, I have wasted £120.
My preference would be to use them regardless..... Good idea or not?
