Tire Replacement - Mixed Brands?
I have 900 miles on my Versys. My rear tire went flat while riding down the Interstate at about 70 mph. By the time slowed down and pulled off the Interstate the tire was completely flat, and I could smell burning rubber. There is a hole in the center of the tread, with an imprint of a roofing nail head around it. Questions - 1) Should I replace the rear tire with something better. 2) If so, do I need to be concerned with how the bike will handle with mixed brands, with the orignal front tire, and an upgraded new rear tire?
