Re: Rain tires??

MEZ6 or Pilot Roads are probably the 2 best, BT020's are pretty good too if you're looking for higher mileage street tires for commuting / general riding with good wet weather traction.

Re: Rain tires??

Thanks guys. I ride a CBR 600F3. I'm currently rockin the Dunlop 208's, but not very happy with those. They seem to loose grip to easy when wet. I am also looking to go up in size. Something like 120/70 17 in front and 170/60 or 180/55 17 in back. What i've read so far about the MEZ6 and Pilot Road are good too. Anybody else have any suggestions???? Also, who's got the deals in town on tires?? right:

Re: Rain tires??

I carry both in stock, give me a call Tuesday and we'll get you hooked up.
BTW for you S/S tire users; I did 270 miles today on the BT014's, about half of that on wet roads and the tires worked great!
