The tires deserve special attention. No joke. In India, whatever comes in touch with the road surface and survives deserves respect. More over the drivers who safely steer worn out rubber (well... by western standards, a tire which grooves are no more then a mere trace of themselves). Pappou is riding on Gypsy wheels. Now don't catch me me here please, I really tried to get this one straight. This combination of wheel and tire gives a sharp braking ability even on unpaved, gravel roads. However I bet any of you readers can't beat the cocktail of brand names and variety of wear conditions Mr. Pappou had installed on only 4 wheels.
-” so t is not a problem that there are no grooves in the tire ?”
Pappou pointed at 'Radial' embossed on the tire wall as what makes the difference and explained that only radials can handle long rides on hot days without overeating, loosing grip or excessively wearing out. Street wise, his experience speaks for itself. How many can drive the same car for 15 years on the harsh roads and traffic of India and still have it look clean and reliable as this one.
