Replacing tires

Some of yall may still remember me, anyways...
I'm due for a set on the bike.. Have been out of the game for a couple years and recently acquired an 06 R6.
Mostly using the bike for spirited riding on Sunday's. Occasional track day this year (When I got out of it a couple years ago, I was in riding level 2 with Ride Smart)

I was leaning more towards the Michelin Pilot Power 3's but am considering the Bridgestone Hypersport S-21's...

Any thoughts? Comments?


Thanks in advance..

Q3s would be my recommendation, only because I have no personal experience with the S21s. I can tell you I have attended a trackday on the S20s and had good results with them for what it's worth.

I had a friend recommend those as well, but I'm also looking at the longevity out of the tires..
What are you getting out of the Q3?
Q2's are on the bike now..

I run the PP3's. They're sticky, don't mind water, and hold up to commuting fairly well (usually better than 5k on the rear).

I was getting 1K out of the Q2's. I tried a Shinko for grins, yes a Shinko and got about 5K out of it, but it's kind of slippery in the wet. Going to try the Q3's next

Q2's are on the bike now..
how much life is left in the Q2s? they are very respectable as well. S20/21 or Q3s are all good choices. Especially considering you're not daily commuting on your bike.

None left. Nail in rear I just picked up a couple weeks ago. Haven't had much time to go get tires until now Lol.
Being that the S21 is going to save some coin, I may give those a shot...

If it was me, the decision would be based on whatever is cheapest (Q3s/S21s).

I know dunlop has a rebate going for the Q3s right now.

Good luck, either way you are going to be rolling on good rubber for your needs.

Paying close attention to pressures in any of the above options will be your best bet, IMHO.

I have had three sets of Pilot Power 3's on different bikes. I can not say enough good things about grip dry/wet or longevity. I had Q2's on a bike several years ago and did not get the life I get out of the Pilots. No input on the Bridgestones. I have also used Pilot Roads and liked them as well. Not as sticky but much better when wet.
