Some advice please. I have a 2002 GSX750F and currently have an Avon Roadrider on the rear which needs replacing, as slow puncture and side walls cracking.

Does it matter what I put on it, as in make, or am I to stick with the Avon as that is what is on the front too?

I have been looking at the Maxxis tyre which is quite a bit cheaper than the Avon. I dont do very many miles in a year and I am a very careful rider.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
