i am currently using dunlops and have had no problems so far with them for riding on the street. but have never taken it to the track, so don't know how it would hold up there.

yeah, I don't think Patrick will steer you wrong.... but if you are going to do track, I would stay away from the Pilot Road....

If you are doing just highway, then run the Pilot Roads in the rear and get the Pilot powers in the front... the pilot road front tires are weird shaped and I did not like them and also many people that have them also do not recommend the tire for the front... I run the roads in the rear and powers in the front...

The 2CT's are real good but your not going to get much life out of it... but for the track they are nice... the compound in the middle is the same as the pilot power, the sides are softer and thus stickier... not a good highway tire in my opinion...

I have never run anything but michelin so I do not know about the other brands.... my 2 cents...

Pilot Power front and rear

average longevity, but super sticky. even before they are warmed up they stick.

i wouldnt reccomend the PP 2ct, its not a harder center like the m3's, its just softer shoulders

For most street riders the Z6 or Pilot Road are MORE than capable of what's being asked of them.

A combo a lot of my customers are using right now are either a Pilot Power front with a Pilot Road rear or an M3 front with a Z6 rear.

I'm really looking forward to the release of the Pilot Road 2Ct here in the states. Reviews by riders from Europe and Australia have been very good.

Pilot roads have never done me wrong and they still have superb grip for the streets with a lengthy tire life.

What tire would you guys recommend for mostly highway riding with some track time? Speeds at about 60 mph to 120 mph...

Thanks in advance for your opinions!
I heard walmart and ToysRus has great deals on tires right now!!! But you have to stay within the speed limit like me.
