Front tire needs replacement but decent rear

What;s up everyone? B4 anyone says a thread already exists I checked and can't seem to find it.

Anyhow, currently im running pilot powers on front and rear. The front needs to be replaced but the rear has >50% left on them. Which tires could I replace the front with without throwing the bike's balance out?

Don't necessarily need super grippy, but would rather have adequate grip and a tire that gets above average mileage.

Any thoughts on m-3's or bto-16's? Or should i keep the pilot powers?

Thanks for the help!

He prolly is. Lol.

Just put a used
michilin race tire on the front. It's cheap and will last forever. But only put 32psi in the tire. I don't care what anybody else says. I've got years of experience riding the street with race tires
