I like that pricing. SO woul dyou say q3's are the best choice out now, I wanted to try other lower cost tires that offer similar performance and more life.

When talking about each brands top tier tire, IMO, they are all close in comparison. It pretty much comes down to preference as most of the tires are very close in price as well as performance.

The Q3's seem to have more grip and better handling, but lack a little in the tread wear dept.

The PP3's have a good mix of all 3, handling, grip, and treadwear.

The S20's has good grip, less aggressive handling, but seems to last longer.

Those are just my opinions, so don't take it as gospel.

190/55 and 120/70. Went to 2 different shops in the Cypress area and they both told me they cannot service my bike. BMW HP2 Sport, the issue was the single-sided swing arm and I guess there is some special lug tool or something! I don't know. See what you can do guys!

I can vouch for that! HouseofPaint install a new rear tire in my VROD very fast and affordable. Too bad they are so far from my location.

if you ride the bike in, it's $30 to remove/install each wheel.

I'd go with the Pirelli Sport Demons.
I keep them in stock but am off today and don't recall pricing.
You can call me tomorrow and I can get you a price.

Your 250 is probably pretty friendly on tires so you could go with the Q3 and not worry to much about the longevity but what was stated earlier its all preference when you get into the top tier tires

The q3 has great grip and feel, but it wears very quickly. I took a 1500 mile trip and did about 300 miles on the track with a set and the rear is nearly done on the edges and very worn in the middle.

I'll match the HoP price on Dunlop Q3's installed on the bike at Wild West Honda. It Sounds like Patrick will as well. That's a smoking deal on awesome tires installed on your bike. Motohouston is very lucky to have sponsors in different locations throughout Houston that offer this level of support. 281-392-8850, ask for Bill in parts. Thanks.
