Most will tell you to get the m3s or pilot powers..it all depends on your riding style.

Also depends on how much you want to spend. Perrelli Diablo Corsas are nice and sticky too.

I loved my Qualifiers. Excellent grip, but shorter life span.

It's the regular diablo, not the corsa or the strada. I havn't ridden on her yet but it looks good on the bike. :icon_bigg

:dontknow: I don't know about that(M1's-lack of grip)? I've seen them grip pretty well, just take a little longer to get up to temp. But i'd have to say that i LOVE my Diablo Corsa's. Very fast warm-up times, and grip pretty amazing(even on a 1K)! Never tried the Powers? The Corsa's are a really good trackday tire. I don't think you would be dissapointed if you chose them. I also like the profile of the new M3's. It has a more rounded and possibly taller profile than the M1's. In my opinion, all the newer mainstream SS tires are pretty good and will generally perform above and beyond. I guess it really depends on your riding style/ability

I really like my BT-014's, great grip on the track & street. I'm trying the Qualifiers next though.

The BT014's are awesome for the street. I bought a set of Diablo Corsa's last week, and man those things are like glue! For the street, go with the 014's! They won't let you down! I've had at least 6 sets of those. They do great in all weather.

M1's are great EXCEPT the wear time.............2800 miles on a set and the rear is looking kinda thin(2 trackdays)
Diablo Corsas are just as good.........heat up faster though.
