    I've seen rave reviews for the Avon Distanzias (SM). I have them on order with my new wheels so we'll see.

    i got myself a pair of Bridgestone BT16s. they grip like hell (no shit) but the front steers a little diff from the stock dunlops. still, the 120 front and 150 rear BT16s are sweet, too bad the BT21s were outta stock, i hope these sport tyres last...

    Question Direct Tire Compairson:

    OK Guys... I have done some searches on this and can't really find what I'm looking for. I want those of you that have run both the Avon Distanza and the Pirelli MT 60 to tell all... I only want those of you that have tried both tires on your bikes and actually do a little off road riding. Make sure you tell what kind of bike you have and your thoughts of each tire!

    Thanks in Advance!!

    Pick up the new SMR magazine... There was a test with 7 different bikes and all had different tires....

    The mt-60's didn't do as well as the Distanzias.....

    The Pirelli MT60-R is a great rainy day tire, good in the wet. Used on dry hot days it will wear out rather quickly.

    The Avon Distanzia also performs well and will last longer when used in the wet or dry.

    The project bike is an 01 DR650... My rims are currently being built and I am gonna run a 5'' in the rear. I am thinking I am gonna have some minor clearance issues and was leaning toward the Pirelli cause the carcass seems to be a little narrower but don't want to sacrifice grip just because of that!

    Is your front a 120-60-17 or 120-70-17? I doubt the rear will go more than 2500 miles...

    The front will likely go over 4,000 miles, but the rear 2,500 or less depending on how you ride... Just the nature of the beast. Unfortunately, most of the sport touring rubber doesn't come in a 150/60/17 rear...

    Thumbs up Distanzia's

    OK... After looking all the threads I could find and what you all have said I just put the purchase on a set of Distanzias... I looked around for a day or so trying to find the best price and thought you guys would like to know that Dennis Kirk had them... I got both the 120/70-17 front and a 160/60-17 rear shipped to my door for $284!! That is hands down the best price I had found!

    i picked up my pilot road 2ct, and i got a 150/70/17 on rear and im not sure how this larger sidewall is going to work out, it doesnt seem to crown as much as i would like over the top...like the 180 sportbike tires do, will it cause any problems? also, if you run a small sidewall, will jumping curbs and such pop ur tubes?

    I may be a nerd, but I'm not that into changing sidewall heights... as for jumping shit popping your tire with a 60 profile, I don't believe it's an issue. I jump all kinds a shit and no popping of tires.

    The one this that it will deff. change is the over-all "gearing" of your bike, because the 70 profile tire has a slightly larger over-all dia. you may pick up a couple mph on the top end...

    The BT-016's are good n' sticky, but like the Michelin Pilot etc. will not last long (maybe 2500 miles on the rear).

    You can put a 160 on the rear, but as has been mentioned here several times, the rear rim on you (and my) bike is just 4.25" and a 160 is designed to fit a 5" rim, sooooo what that means is that your rim will "pinch" the sidewalls in closer than they would be on a 5" rim thus, changing the profile of the tire from what it was intended to be to something else. You can do it though...

    I love em on my 625SMC. They don't last all that long, but they stick quite nicely and when they do slide it's predictable.

    Sorry i am really lazy and don't feel like searching but. i want a STICKY tire for Street/track use. And possibly Just a track tire (if i can convince myself to spend the $ for a 2nd set of wheels) But i am going to get on the track soon and tires are the most important thing on the bike. Seeing that the are the only thing that touches the ground. Please give me some feed back on at least just track tires.

    Thanks Guys

    Cool, let us know how it works out. I have a 150/60/17 BT016 rear and 120/70/17 front.

    It's good to get feedback on all these tires, 'cuz who has the $$$ to try ALL of them?!

    Well, if you get a 2nd set of wheels, you can get a 5" rear rim and run all that good 160/60/17 rubber. If you are going to get a second set of wheels for the track and want the best tires, get some Michelin "One" tires (160/60/17 rear $241.00+). Or Dunlop slicks (NOT cheap like $299.00 for a rear) http://www.motostrano.com/dusurasl.html , or hell, even the Shinko slicks (160/60/17 rear $114.03) *these also come in 150/60/17*.

    I put 4500 miles on the original Duncraps on my DRZ before putting on Perelli MT-60's.

    I wanted something that has a little more off road stability and so far I've put about 1k on the MT-60's and think their great.
    Good enough stick on the pavement and enough meat that the front doesn't feel like trying to jump out from underneath me in the loose stuff.
    But I am not doin' track days either, so that's just me

    Question Conti's

    I got a good recommendation from a friend that was very satisfied with contiforce SM's so im going to try them unless someone thinks that there is a better bang for your buck tire.

    My question is:

    I am running a 120/60-17 on the front currently (that is being replaced)
    The place im getting them from only has a 120/70-17.. Which makes me a little skeptical whether I should stick with the same sizes or not...

    - What is the difference between the /60 and the /70?

    - Will it effect performance or handling enough to tell?

    - I am currently running Michelin Pilot Sports (z rated's) and they were pretty sticky but I think they are designed more for streetbikes. I dont see them on sumo's often. Anybody have anything good to say about Conti's now that im thinking of getting them?

    And one last question:

    - What tire pressure do you guys usually run in your tires for summer street use (twisty riding not commuting)?

    If you can answer ANY of those questions let me know because im ready to click the "order" button in this other window for these conti's.

    Thanks

    I'll help some...

    60 series tires are shorter than 70 series tires. It's an aspect ratio, 60% vs. 70% of the tread with (120mm).

    60s typically will transmit more of the sharper bumps to the forks/rider whereas the 70s absorb more. The 60s will turn in a little quicker, all other things being equal, like profile, but the 60s also (historically) don't give as much feedback as 70s do.

    That's all I got....

    So basically 70's sound like a better choice because they have more shock absorbing qualities and are more responsive? Are we talking a noticeable difference to the eye or is this 60 vs 70 even something that you could see with the eye without measuring? Basically is going from a 60 to a 70 going to change how I ride really? Is there enough difference? Will it look different?

    I also have a tire question!

    I will be running couple of trackdays this summer, like 7 or so.. My speed is quiet fast, a few seconds after the fastest ones. Currently I have a BT016 at the rear, great tire with excellent grip. But! It is on the "wear-marks" after just 1000 miles..

    So now I would like to get a tire that lasts a bit longer, but of course I don't wan't to sacrifice too much grip out there on the track.. Was thinking of Pilot Road 2ct, but after som research i found out that the gets slippery when really hot.. So now I don't know what too choose. Hope some of you guys got anny tips!

    the 70 profile is usually sharper, meaning it will actually turn in quicker as well. there's no reason to use the 60.

    So, I'm looking for new tires. DUh. I have a DRZ400s with 17" march's. A 4.5 rear. I grew up racing motocross and have the ability to push this pig to the best of it's ability. When I converted it to sm I got s/touring tires Metz z6 due to commuting on it. I have regularly outrun many sm's and sport bikes, but braking is downright f'n scarry (even with a 320 front, it's the tires). If I'm not well versed on the road or thinking way ahead when I get on them hard I'll sometimes have to stand er up straight to brake or die. So now I'm starting to just run canyons more than commute and I would like a real sticky set of tires that are cost effective as well as allow me to do some commuting. I don't think I want a duel compound due to having the same unpredictable braking. What size do you recommend and what tire. Then tell me what to do with psi, I have NFC. I'm 210lbs with gear, stock susp set to the Max.

    The short answer, (and really all you need) is to pick up a set of ANY SPORT, OR SUPER-SPORT tires. I.e. Bridgestone BT-016, Metzler M3, Michelin Pilot power, Dunlop D208 etc. etc anything you'd put or find stock on a GSXR, R-6 etc. and run them at about 25psi.
    You will have great grip, but poor wear (about 4,000 miles on the front, about 2,500 on the rear).

    Cheers!

    Changed my mind and bought a pilot power rear and a c2t p.p. front. I'll give it a go and see what I think.

    I've tried the MT60's, Metzeler Sportec M3, Dunlop Qualifier on my 640SMC. The MT-60s lasted 800miles, pretty good grip though.
    Sportec M3, lasted like 1500-2000 miles rear, Still running M3 front after 4000 miles. Good grip
    Qualifier had awsome grip, lasted about the same as the Sportec's.

    Currently I mounted a Michelin PowerOne Competition B rear, first impression is that is really quick turning.

    All the tyres have had their share of trackdays, both gocart and bigger Superbike size tracks. Pretty impressed by the qualifier that didn't let go with throttle wide open over a crest att pretty heavy lean angle

    Just mounted some BT021s yesterday. Took the bike out for about 100 miles today and they feel great. No problem at all getting the strips scrubbed off. The tires feel very grippy and confident on the edges.

    Whoops, should have mentioned that. It's on my 690SMC. I'm wondering what kind of mileage I will get. Got about 1800 out of the stock Pirelli rear. Replaced that with a Shinko 009 Raven (got it dirt cheap, had to know for myself if it was worth it) which yielded about 3000 miles. Hoping the BT021s will give me more.

    My experience is that 3000 miles is pretty good for a rear tyre on a big supermoto. Might be my riding style but havn't had any rear tyre last beyond 2000 miles...
