Lets talk tires

Recommended Posts

Me, personally, with the way I ride ( leisurely ) some of the less expensive tires work just fine. I got the older Dunlop Roadsmart II tires for cheap and they're wearing as good as more expensive tires that I've had and they grip well enough for regular riding. So, at least when they wear out they don't cost me as much. You really don't need the best tire on the market if you're not pushing the tire real hard.

 

With the different ways many people have of analyzing and judging tires and not knowing how and where they ride you're probably better off just doing what most do, > trial and error and decide for yourself what's best for you.

I was kind of asleep while reading until I read line 23 where you said 01101111 01101111 01101111 01101111 01101111 01101111 01101111 01101111 01101111. What kind of person would say such a thing, you beastard!

From what I've heard and read you can't go wrong with PR4's and the PR5's are suppose to be even better.  They are expensive but last a long time and are great in the rain.

I can't wait to get my hands on a set of Metzler Roadteh 01's.  They're suppose to be a step up from PR's.  Better handling and equal in the rain and just as long lasting.  About $30-40 cheaper for a set too.

Just what I've read in tire comparisons, no real world experience.

Anybody know how the pilot road 5 would handle on the track?

They'd handle the track fine unless you're out there setting course record in which case the extra tire sipes would lead to excessive tread flex and wear.

I run the dunlop Q3's on my FZ07, I do lots of commuting, sport touring and mountain rides. Love the profile of these tires and grip. No better street tire imo

if the pr4's are any indication... very well.. 
at proper pressure they are surprisingly grippy at lean and give decent feedback

My bike came with Battleax BT-023s... they seem to ride well enough, but I wish for a bit more grip in the rain.  I'll probably go Pilots when they come due.  I don't ride as much as I'd like to, so I'll likely need to replace for age before I'd have to replace for mileage.

I run the Q3+ on my FZ07 as well. I ride them about 80% track, 20+ street. Love everything about them. If they start to lose traction, it happens very gradually, and with lots of warning. I've never been "surprised" by them 😎

My current '17 FZ-07 came with the Battleax BT-023s and they are a decent tire for me. Haven't had any issues with them in all forms of weather and temps. I currently have about 10,550 miles (~16,980 km) on them and should see another 5,000 miles (~8,000 km) out of them by the time I reach the wear indicators. I'll be going back to my main brand (Michelin) and getting the Road 5 tires as replacements.
