You have to tell us more about what type of riding you do, bike you ride, and area for us to tell you the best tires for it!!!

Go to the New Riders sub forum and introduce yourself.

Oh yeah and Search is your friend!!!

We have a big argument about it all the time between Michelin Pilot Power's and Perelli Corsa III's if your a twistys rider! So you can use the search button to read the many of them!!

But once you give us your info we will start another ether over those two or others that are good for other types of riding!!!

There is no argument between PPs and Corsa IIIs. Corsa IIIs own PPs. The argument is between Corsa IIIs and PP 2CTs. They are the more equivalent tire to each other.







What type of riding do you do? There isn't one magical tire for everyone. If you ride a lot of superslab, a soft tire will be bad for you because you will wear it out quick and a hard tire will be bad if you only ride twisties.

knobbies! seriously, figure out, do you like lots of twisty roads, superslab, or is it a commuting bike? this determines the tires you should try.

Pilot Roads are a good all round tire. Pilot Roads 2CTs are good for alot of commuting plus soft PP like sides for the twisties.

I just put like 7k on a set of Pilot Roads.

I have a set of PP's that should be here Tuesday. we'll see how they do n compare.

Depending I may get the Pilot Road 2CTs next round.

Not heard anything bad about the Corsa IIIs.

Can't go wrong if you look on the sidewall and see Michelin or Pilot or Power.

I'm looking at the Road 2's for my next set. 'Course, my stockers probably have 1-3k left on them. Should be gone in a month

Something makes me think that for a dude named "gixxer rida", it really isn't going to matter too much which tires he gets.
