I brought my et-8 from On Ting in Tai Kok Tsui.
So far, I have two “slip tire”
incidents…The first case is in happy valley,
that evening was raining heavily, and I was a
relatively new driver…I drove over a tram rail
at a slow speed (no more than 30km per hour), I
fall over immediately…Since it's a rainy
day…I thought it's my fault…
On the second occasion…it's definitely related
to the tire, I was leaving On Ting on that date
after changing my rear mirror….There was a
small rain and I drove really carefully due to
the rain. When I was going into the
circle area in to the Western cross harbor
tunnel, I fall again…this time, my speed
should be under 30km… As I did not even get a
scratch on my knees or elbows…
After that, I changed my tires
immediately…When I did that, my mileage is no
more than 1000 km….
That tire is really bad.

I think I am one of the people who has the
rear tire bust at eastern corridor last month.
I went to lei see too. I am lucky that day. My
tire burst when I was travelling at max speed
of ET8 and I could control the bike.
note that I have changed the tire to Dunlop
before it burst. The point is, there are many
pins on eastern corridor because of the
I think it has nothing to
do with the OEM tire. Though I agree the OEM
tire is slippery.

The technican from tow truck said this is the

if it is true, i think we should do something
because it is hurting our LIFES. Whatever ET8
owners or other road users.
