Michelin Tires??

Anyone have any opinions on which tires to go for. Im looking at the Power Pilots or the Power Pilots 2CT. I haven't used either and was wanting some feedback from anyone who has used these.

190/50 or 55? For street or track? What kind of riding do you do? What are you using right now? How many miles are you looking to get? How many miles are you getting right now?

This site NEEDS another tire thread!

I like the reg PP. Have them on the tona right now. Good for street track rain what ever, and they are relatively cheap.
BTW i never have had the 2cts so my opinion is what you would call biased.

Right now I have the Metzler M3 they are ok. They don't grip as well as the original tires I had which were Diablo corsas. I am riding on he steet and plan on going to some track days . I wanted to try the Michelins though. Just dont know which ones.

switch to the 55 series

this rules out the PP, but you can get it in a 2ct.

I'd recommend Corsa3, but you specified Michelin

2ct's are what you are looking for in the 55.


BUT

The best tire and price out there for you would be a Bridgestone BT016 OR if you are a pretty fast track guy a BT002.

Get with Jon at SCRC (site sponsor) he can hook it up!
