Don't buy a distanzia unless you just need that look. Other than that, stick with last generation's sport bike tires like the pilot power, Dunlop qualifier, bridge stone bt003 or bt016 etc. The distanzia is way too expensive now.

Was that the one for $88?
I found the one for $88 + $10 shipped (150/60/17 supermoto compound). Thanks for the heads up, I ordered today and it shipped same afternoon. Everything looks good so far, there's one left in stock if anyone needs it, can't beat the price.
I got my 160 from Dennis Kirk, $179 shipped. Then up popped the one on eBay for $109 from the guys you got yours from. Mine has 70 dollars worth of better rubber, guaranteed.
I'm a happy camper, should have them back on the bike Saturday morning. Wheelies by noon.
Yes, IronPonyDirect on EBAY is legit!!!! I got a NEW destinzia rear 150/60/17 supermoto compound delivered for $98 bucks, incredible deal.
'11 Derbi Senda DRD SM, that one has been sold.
'07 Aprilia MX 125 S2 Edition, small two-smoker.
'09 Husqvarna 510 SMR, it does broap.
Has anyone tried the new AVON Trailrider tires? They are supposed to have replaced the Distanzia. I was considering using the Heidenau K73 but those trailrider tires have me re-thinking what to run. Cam.

I'm going to run the Pilot Power 3 that I do know. All this talk about tires, and not one mention of what tubes to run and where to get them? I'm all ears...
Any tubes from anywhere.
To live outside the law my dear you gotta givea damn.
I live for this
2001 XR650LSM,Clark tank,Warp 9 wheels,Avon Distanzia's,40mm FCR -MX carb,UNI Filter,Marko Header,White brothers E2 muffler,CRF450R USD forks & triples,BRP SUB Mount,Scott's Damper,MotoMaster racing caliper & Rotor,Brembo 16/18 Radial MC,15-43 gearing.
I won't run any wheels which require tunes buy 95% of people on this forum probably do. Try posting to a different threat.
I run tubes. May weigh a bit more, but I won't notice any difference. I usually run whatever tube is cheapish- not like my tard is going to see many rocks. It's not street legal either, so no stairs in my immediate future. I've had great luck with kenda HD tubes for street supermoto. They seem to be pretty thick and beefy. I put a UHD tube in the front of a neighbor's dirt bike and it was extremely thick. In my dirt bike I just run tubliss.

Can anybody help me find the post that stated actual tire width of 160 tires? I just put a 2ct 160 on a 5" wheel and its it already touching my chain. I want a 160 because of the wheel but I remember reading the Michelin is already a very wide 160.
Anybody running S20 of BT016 on a 5 inch wheel?
Could you measure the actual width for me? (160 and 150 tire)
Any difference between these tires? I read that the S20 are supposed to be better, still a lot of people i know prefer the BT016..

I really like the tires (I'm sure every brand makes them) that look to be slicks, or close to it, that have those notches (for a lack of a better word) every 3-5 inches apart. I know they aren't DOT approved but most sumos aren't DOT approved lol. How difficult is it to ride those tires on a very clean, well paved street? Anyone have experience riding those on a street on a SM?

I want to try something other than the Continental ContiAttack SM's any recommendations?
I want good grip like the conti attack but am tired of using about 5 rear tires and 2 front tires/year.
Take note that I live in Denmark (Europe) so only few months with warm weather
Please help me out here.
I live in Holland, so basically the same climate as you
Still don't know which tires to choose..
Thinking about these tires:
Bridgestone BT016 (pro)
Bridgestone S20 (evo)
Bridgestone BT090 (because these are specifically for lighter bikes)
Michelin PP CT2
Michelin Power Pure SC
Metzeler Sportec M5
Pirelli Diablo Rosso II
The reason i list these tires above is because they are less then 100 euros (mostly below 90 euros) Thats like less then $120 for a rear tire.
Leaning towards the K80 or BT090 as they are especially for lighter bikes / supermoto's..
I had these tires before:
Maxxis Prese M6119 (superior grip, also offroad. But the were worn within 1000km in the summer)
Contiattack SM ( dont know exactly why, but i really dont like these tires much, although they are extremely populair among my friends... )
Michelin Power One ( very grippy race tire!!! unfortunately they dont make these any more in 150 or 160 sizes )
Pirelli Supercorsa Dragon ( good tire, really grippy but pricey )
Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa (very good tire, but again, really pricey... )
Metzeler Sportec M1 ( takes a bit long to warm up, but a pretty good tire, not really suitable for supermoto in my opinion )
Hopefully someone can give me some advice. I dont want sport/tour tires, more like sport/racy tires! I ride really hard with some trackdays. When i'm not on the track i'm still riding like i'm on the track

I Just ordered a BT090 R Pro. there is about 1 week delivery time so luckily I have 1 week of vacation time with the kids coming up :-p
I've had my DRZ400SM since the Spring of this year and where I live on Vancouver island we have a lot of roads with gravel/shale sides and a lot of this gets moved out onto the road surface from large lumber trucks and tourist mobiles especially in the mountain roads which can be narrow and very twisty. What I have been doing every week is picking sharp shards of stone out of my rear stock tire with my pocket knife. It's only a matter of time before I pickup a shard large enough that cuts through the case so I have been looking at the Heidenau K73's which because of the block tread pattern might help with this. Also the pattern is tight so the ride will be fairly decent I think. The tires have silica compounds and rated to be excellent in the rain which we have a lot of out here in the PNW. The bike shop I deal with has installed them on other DRZ's and the 160 rear has no problem with clearance. |
