If you are just replacing the rear then I would get whatever matches the front, but if you are getting a new set then pilot powers are the way to go from what I've been told. Of course there are Dunlop qualifiers(heard they don't last long), metzeler M1's and M3's, or Pirelli diablo's(if you can swing the higher cost).

I like the PP's because they are reasonably priced and a good all around tire. If you are racing or such, spend the extra. It all depends on what you want to do.

You will be happy with the PP's, dunlops, or similar tire. When you look check lean angle, expected life/traction level, size, and price. Try typing your size into Froogle.

I got my wheels in the shop right now getn Pilot Powers put on! Went through a few dunlops, now to try the famed pp's. My dunlops were a good tire though, stuck like glue.

Get PP's. Get the full set. Don't mis match. Tire profiles are different and you're sacrificing lean angle. Get a matching set of PP's. You can thank me later.
