I've been a Pirelli man for many years but recently I found myself on a trip with a tyre that disappeared before my eyes. There were no Rosso II's available and was offered Michelin Power RS. I was told they compared with Rosso Corsa's, which stick like baby shit to a blanket, but don't last long.
Expecting to barely make it back home, I was pleasantly surprised. So much so that I put one on the front later on. They are the best tyre I've ever used, and if calculations are correct they'll go close to 5 figures. I can't believe that they will, but that's what the math says.
Yep. I measured the depth new and then @ 3000 km on the front, and the estimated distance was 10,301. For the rear it was 6,284 after 2,000.Are you talking 10 000 clicks .
That's what I'm expecting. The estimate assumes consistent wear throughout the lifetime. I'm sure it won't be. If I get 7000 from the front and 5000 from the rear I'll be very happy. The rear Rosso Corsa only made 3,200, and I'm confident the RS will beat that. I think it's a stickier tyre too, although I haven't compared them back to back.I have found Michelin,s hold up quite well till half worn, then turn to butter and melt in very few miles or (kilometers).
I recall fitting a new tyre to my old Kawasaki Z1B back in the late 70s and completely wearing it out in just 110km!Are you talking 10 000 clicks
I had diablo rossos on once, took them off after 500 miles and put them in the bin , really didnt rate them at all . Went back to the old fathiful Bridgestone bt016 hypersports which I run on both my bikes. I'm tempted to try the s21's next time, but il not be straying from bridgestone !Hello guys,
I am planning to buy new tyre for Tornado TRE 900. Please suggest me options and good grip tyres for cornering.
