It's time for new tires ... radial or bias-ply?
I noticed that Micehlin makes a Pilot Road Radial tire. Are most sport bikes rims compatible with Radial tires? Anyone know the pros and cons of radial/bias-ply?
I'm pretty aggresive on the street - need good grip in wet/dry but I want a tire that's gonna last for more than 3K miles.

The metzler M-1 and michelin pilot powers have excellent grip on wet ground and should last for up to 6k miles depending your weight. If you find any d208's laying around, dont get em cuz they dont last long for s**t!

For your type of riding I'd recommend either the Pilot road or the Metzler Z6.
Plenty sticky yet with good mileage / wet weather capabilities.
As far as bias vs radial. There's no reason to run bias nowadays if radials are available in your size.
