2007 GSXR600 Needs New Tires

It's about that time for new tires. Any suggestions for good tires that won't be too expensive?

not trying to be a , but there are dozens of tire thread here.
Youll need to know what you expect out of your tire, milage v. wear v. grip. Once you know that, youll be able to read through some threads and figure out what you need/want.

If you have question, call one of the sponsors. I for one would suggest Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited - he will help sort out your needs, riding style etc and suggest some good tires.

BT016's are an excellent tire.
If you do more commuting, then try a BT023 rear.
They have a longer thread life.

Depending on where you're located, try calling one of our sponsors and talk to them.
They can get you started in the right direction.

The 2CTs are stickier than the regular pilots(center and shoulder compound) I thought the same thing when they came out.....

Get whatevers on sale from Michelin,perrelli bridgstone Dunlop, if ur street riding they will suffice.

A lot of sales on Q2s and BT016s
