I would think anything but thse hard commuting tires that come on most new bikes.
I would be fine with anything on the back but a some what sticky tire on front so the front end dosent wash out.
I am not suggesting anything but i think it is funny all these guys comming in here and throwing out tire names when I am sure there are fast guys running street tires.

The ones you are comfortable with. That said, I like the Bridgestones.

Thats a little high. The BT016 works really good at 29 front & 27 rear on the bigger bikes. To put it in perspective, we run the BT016 on the rear of the SV650 at 22 psi cold, but the SV is a low hp, lightweight bike.
