Tyres

Post by Iain » Thu May 04, 2023 8:33 pm


Before I open a new tyre choices poll. As the last one has gone stagnant, I'd like you to post a reply on what you're currently running and what you're thinking about running next.

I'm on Rosso III's - going to Michelin Road 6's

My Rosso's are good... when they're hot they're awesome but getting them and keeping them there without dying is a challenge, especially when road riding. In the wet they're better than I thought they'd be, they clear the tyre channels easily and provide very good feedback when braking (very hard or softly) the initial lean in in the rain can be a bit unnerving the first couple of times as they're not the best at clearing the side channels quickly to cope with cornering. But you get used to that and just have to have confidence in that you've not asked the bike and tyres to do something STUPID, and remembering that the tyres will be fines after 2 or 3 seconds.

Road 6's > Road 6's, unless Road 7's get released. They're great tires. I've taken them through deserts, rain, sleet and snow (do not recommend 🤣). /Shrug

Road 5 to RoadTec 01 SE to Road 6. All excellent in both wet and dry road conditions but each slightly better than the previous. All can handle any type of Road riding I ask of them, from high speed autobahn to switchback Alpine passes.

OEM S21's to the T32's. Just about to replace the front with another T32.
Both were good for me, with the T32 rear been suprisingly hard wearing yet grippy.
My riding isnt balls out speed, although I do like a spirited play now and again.
Roads I ride on range from the Yorkshire Dales to the Lincolnshire flats, and a yearly cheshire cat grin while riding the Pico's.

I’m definitely an S22 fan.

Had them on a few bikes. I don’t do huge mileage and it’s a very rare day my bikes see rain or cold, but for fun sporty rides in the dry S22’s are beyond anything I can throw at them.

Voted Sportsbike Tyre of the Year winner and joint winner with good reason.

Has anyone tried a Metzler M9RRs? A friend has recommended them and I am thinking about giving them a try but it would be good to know others experiences.

I’ve been running the Michelin Road series since 2014 on my 14R. As soon as I burn off the S22’s there’s no question what I’m mounting up. Rain, hot, curves, dragging Hayabusa’s, 2 up at double +10 in the curves. There hasn’t been a single situation I’ve thrown at these tires that they haven’t just flat out delivered; and they last FOREVER. As far as I’m concerned there’s no other tire on the market that can do all those things well.

Sure they’re expensive, but so is the bike we all ride.

I bought my new 2022 H2 three months and I have 2500 miles on it. I love the way the OEM S22 perform in the Colorado canyon roads. I think I can get 3000 miles out of these tires but due to circumstances, I am replacing them now with 2500 miles with another set of S22.

The most likely scenario is that when these S22 wear out I will go to Road 6 or Dunlop Roadsmart 4 and get twice as many miles.

The S22 are the best handling tires I have ever used, but 3000 miles is not enough, I guess I'll try it twice.

Loved the S22 but the bike ate them way too fast. Had the T31s and now on the T32s and can't fault them

have me now again mount the S22 ... were after just 4000 KM at the end.

But I'm still not soo convinced of those, already slipped several times, I give those now again a chance, otherwise I'll try others.
