Help..Dunlop or Michelin Tires???Which to choose?

REV_IT_UP......hay Ya'll.....I salute you......Time for RaceRR to get some new tire prints. Stupid me, can't decide on which to get...The Dunlop Qualifiers or the Michelin Pilot Power 2CT.....The Brigestone Battlax BT-016? What a delima to be in. I've read allot of advertisments on all the tires. I have Dunlop tires now and there handling characteristics are exactly as stated on the Dunlop posts. I'm hard to satify and would like to improve my style adn ability. I would like to use the tires for a driving on the tract and some street driving. I would also like to purchase them from someone or someplace around town, so I can give my hard earned money to my neighbors. Can anybody help?
Thanks for your time and GB. See ya.....ZIP...BANG....BOOM..wheelstand.

Welcome to the forum. Check out the sponsors on here and you are sure to get the best deal. All tires are good depends on your ability. They are way more than your regular street rider can use them for.

What a crazy post...
Pirelli Corsa3
Check for your local site sponsor... Motorcycles Unlimited up north... I'm not sure of the south ones (and I'm south, I guess that speaks volumes of Patrick and crew).

Good luck, and welcome.

Very Good......I want a tire that I can lean into and out of the corners. I want to lean to a higher degree and the Michelins have the best post on increasing these characteristics. Breaking and accelleration is next. At Luguna Seca....the first two riders were on Bridgestone tires.....( I think)..Is this something to consider? Or its all in the genes and those guys will win no matter what tire there using? YeeeeHaw.....

Thanks I didn't consider Pirelli's because when I had my cage...I totally distroyed them. But I'll put them into the mix and will leave it to the Motorcycle to determine. In response to your "Crazy post" man the new definatino for Crazy was when Rossi short cut Stonner at Laguna last weekend.....WOW..totally unprecedented and totally un predictable, even Stonner was impressed, but .

WTF?? Go to our site sponsors for tires. Search the forum for opinions. The search tool is on the right side of the toolbar at the top. Please post in correct forums. Are you introducing yourself? If so welcome... I guess.

I have pilot powers and 2ct's. I like them alot. All the tires you alluded to are probably more than you would need in any case. So enjoy!

^^^ lol @ tiatool...

Basing tire decisions on Moto GP wins is like buying a car because they won at Indy. Like tia said, all the above are more than enough. I listed Pirelli, cuz that's what I like. He likes Michelins. Jim Bob likes Bridgestones. See, everyone has an opinion.

Ive run pirelli, bstones, michelins and honestly you not going to outride the tires that they have, especially riding the streets. They all perform very well.

That's not a tire you can buy.

I prefer the Corsa's over the michelin only for the simple fact I can get more mileage out of them. Not a fan of wheelies and takes a while for the center compound to warm up enough on the Corsa's to allow a wheelie over a burn out. I also like the tire profile(more rounded) which helps turn in especially on a bigger bike.

If he is reffering to motogp tires. Those are made specifically for the rider, track, conditions, ect... They are not for sale to the public. They then take the technology from their testing and impliment it into "sale" tires. Hope that answers your question.
