Time will tell at this point how the DCIII holds up.

pilot power 2CT, my friends use them at the track and love them. I wouldn't personally know b/c my bike uses tires that are made by huffy.

Bridgestone 002RS are awesome everywhere and they wear fairly well, too...

Diablo Corsa IIIs work great on the street and track, and wear well, too...
I thought the point of the 2ct's were to wear less in the middle b/c its a harder compound than the sides

also, what is the difference b/w the road 2ct and the power 2ct???

I'm going to get a new rear tire, anyone have any suggestions?

I'm thinking Pilot Power 2CT, but offer your suggestions and why you like a certain tire.
I liked the Pilot Power 2CT, but on wet roads....Heeeeeel no. On my FZ6 it was tooooscarrrrry, no traction at all.

There's a lot of asphalt around me as well and traction can be an issue especially in cooler weather. Iíve used Bridgestones, Dunlop 208, and Pilot Power 2CT in recent years and found that the PP has the best traction on asphalt when cool (with a cold tire too). The stonesí would spin, the Dunlops would spin to the top of 3rd gear since it could not get warm enough in temps below about 60 degrees ambient to start working the way it will when warmer. The PP, even when cold, has very good traction for me. I have found that the harder center compound of the 2CT seems to provide better grip at lower temps.

Just my observations. Your results may vary.

Road 2CT is a pilot road compound in the center section and pilot power compound on the edges

Power 2CT is pilot power compound in the center section and pilot race compound on the edges.

At least that's what I'm told.
