Hp4

Hello everyone. Just got a used Hp4 Competition 2013. It's only has 7000 miles on it but tyres are not changed since 2013. Should I change tyres?? And if yes which ones should I get? I don't do TRACK and ride only on weekends.

Congrats! I would change them. They are probably a bit dry being 6 years old. Fresh rubber is always better. I would stick with the pirelli Sc. Or maybe metlzer or q4 if you want to save a few $$

Defiantly get new tires. Q4 is a great choose.

OEM is fine.

I would definitely change those tires. Tires go bad even if there is plenty of tread, they have a date stamp on the side that shows when they were manufactured. It's four numbers, the first two numbers are the week (out of 52) and the second two numbers are the year. Shows the week of what year they were manufactured, I reccommend changing every 3 years although I think you're supposed to be able to get by upto 5 years. Either way, you're over due.
