There is no perfect tire. I could spin any tire I mounted on my ZX-14. It's all in the throttle. Higher mileage = harder rubber and easier spin. I used a sport touring tire like the Conti Road Attack for mileage and Pilot Power or BTO-14 when I wanted to play in the twisties. Corsa III was the best for all around use.

i just got a shinko 005 for my BUSA. great tire, its more squared off, obviously takes away from cornering but my busa is stretched and is more of a straight away warrior. gives a lot more contact patch and has good grip from what ive seen so far.
