    Lemans 5 - V or H rated tyres

    There seems to be more choice and better prices on H rated tyres.
    Do I need to go with V on the old girl. I'm not likely to go over the 130 the H is rated at?
    If V rated I'm down to a choice of 2 or 3.
    100-120 / 90 / 18 either Mich pilot activ or BT 45. Any preference?
    There is also a Dunlop streetsmart but no one seems to have tried them.
    What do you think.
    Cheers
    G

    Haven't you answered your own question then?

    I ran BT45's on my MkI/II hybrid thingy and loved them.

    Here's a link to the discussion on here LINKY

    I'm not skimping but I've used BT45 and Mich before on other bikes and fancied a change.
    A change is as good as a vest, or is that dislexia KO.
