Need new tires

Does anyone know where I can go buy some off the shelf Pireli Diablo Rosso Corsas? Called my local shops and they don't carry any in stock. Is Eximports on 59S still around? I know those tire come standard on Ducati's which I know they sell.

why do you "need" super sticky rubbers? how do you ride?

eximports is closed down, but stubbs has taken over the ducati dealership there.
but many places can change your tires.

Well I can't speak for my bike because I got it used and don't know how many mile they put on the tires before I got it. I currently have Michelin Pilot Power 2CT and I put 2700 miles on them. The front is still good but the back is gone...

You've been riding less than a year and you ride so fast and agressive on the street that you need new tires??
Did you ever know of a guy named Jeremy Catrelle? Say "hi" for me when you see him.

it does not matter how long you have been riding... getting your suspension set for your weight is a good idea...
and if you are gong to do track days it is a must...
and if you are going to be replacing tires anyway, why not go with a tire that will stick at above your riding level...
having your suspension set and good tires is about the cheapest safety precaution you can take...

Since when are Diablo Corso Rossos super sticky tires?
