Need new Tires ...Help

HI Guys and girls

I have a 04 Gsxr 600 and I need new tires for front and back. My question is which tires are the best for the best price? I was looking at Pirelli Diablo Supersport Tires I will be able to get them both for around $250. Are those good tires? I ride a lot and would prefer a tire that will last but I also would like to have a good grip in the turns. I did change my back tire a year ago and now I have to change it again because I can see the wires on it. I don't do any burnout but I think I'm using the back break more then I should ....oooo I do a bunch of wheelies or I'm trying to do a bunch of wheelies. Any way ....

Thanks for the Help

The Diablos are a decent tire but won't last long.
A few good combos to look at are: B014 front and BT021 rear, M3 front and Z6 rear, Pilot Power front and Pilot Road or Road 2CT rear.

I've got numerous customers using these combos with great results.

I personally am running the Power / Road 2CT combo and really like it.

The least expensive would be the Bridgestones, followed by the Metzlers, and then the Michelins.

I would deffinately spring for the michelins they are worth the money imo.....i got a pilot power 2ct in the rear on my 07 gixxer 6 when my stock bt014's went out and i noticed alot more grip in the corners and slow speed also...mind you these are the powers which are stickier than the roads-Q
