Tire Options, which to order

Hey guys, I have been around a little while doing track days a few times a year and riding on the street as well. I wanna start looking for my next set of tires for the track and just want some opinions. I'm riding a 06 GSXR 750 with a 190 on the back.

Tires that I have experience with are Bridgestone R10s (loved these, felt like they were probably the best tires that I have ever rode on.) I also have spent most of my time on Pirelli Diablo Superbike Pro tires, that's what I'm running now and I would kinda like to get away from these. All the other tires I have been on are street so I didn't bother listing.

I'm running level two and using warmers. Thanks for the feedback.

I like the Bridegstones, but favor the Pirelli's.

The little bit of testing I did on the Dunlops, I didn't like the feel.

If you aren't using your take offs on a street bike or something, then make the switch to slicks. The slicks seem to last a little longer than the DOT's.

Give the Pirelli Superbike PRO slicks a try.
They have a softer carcass compared to the Bridgestones, which took a little getting used to, but I felt I could lay down more power and they stick.

Do some testing and stick with what feels good to you.

If you want to stay with Pirelli go to south central race center and talk with john and he will get you the right tires.

As a level 2 rider any track day tire will provide enough grip for you.

I run the Q3s on my track bike. For me they worked great up into the advanced group where I used to live. Ran level 2 here once since I moved back and had no issues. Maybe I'm doing it wrong They're cheap and they work for me.
