Who uses what tyres?
What doesn`t suit?
Anyone running a 180 rear?
I have a set of brand new Pirelli Super Corsa`s but 180 rear not 190
Opinions please:confused: :confused: :confused:

Dave the 208's that came on the TNT were good........the Bt020’s were about the same the bt014's I fitted were definitely better........ but the Pirelli Diablo corsa's I now run are superb :clap: I was told Pirelli recommend not to run a 180 on the TNT rim as it effects the speed rating ? whether that is true or not I don’t know but I can tell you that the 190 turns as quick as I want it to, and grips like a lady of the night ;)

Pilot powers 2ct for me (190 on the arse)

Lovely set of rubbers they are. I've got about 5mm of unused rubber on the sides and I feel as though I've not even had the bike over that far;)

Pirelli Diablo Corsas are the rollocks!

Have had these on for a while and gave them a good thrashing at brands hatch. Had foot-pegs and all scraping on the track.

Tyres

Thanks Guy`s,
Looks like it`s a toss up between Diablo Super Corsa`s or Pilot Power 2CT :duel:
I liked the old super corsa` are the Diablo`s similar?

Dave, trust us go for the Diablo's.....remember having confidents in your rubber is half the battle to good cornering (ooops back to the lady’s of the night again sorry) :rolling:

Another very good choice is Dunlop SportMax QUALIFIER.
Very good grip on hot tarmac, good grip on wet tarmac, last 2x as long as the Pirellis. And they're cheaper as well...
