    Tyres

    Been away from bikes for a while (6yrs) anyway got myself an MT09 in October, mine came with Dunlop sport max on it and I've not had any issues but not overly convinced with wet weather performance.
    What have people used ?
    My favorites in the past were a Bridgestone 010 front 020 rear but appreciate things have moved on...
    Something that's good for commuting in all weathers and grippy too for the odd loon day, don't ever go on a track though, really like something grippy as possible on the front, rear not so fussy... Cheers

    Michelin Pilot Road 4's. Stunning tyres, Great in wet and dry, and they last well.

    Dunlop roadsmart 3 read the reviews. I have used roadsmart 1&2 tyres and they were brilliant, the reviews say that the 3's are even better.

    PR4's great performance wet & dry great mileage out of them as well I have about 5000k miles on a set now and the rear will certainly last at least another 3k.

    had no issues with the OEM Dunlops. Hate the S20. Probably looking at Q2s or Rosso Corsa nest.

    I used to go for the PR4's - now i've tried the new Matzeler Raodtec 01's - they beat the PR4's

    Done 1652 miles and the rear Dunlop is looking pretty much buggared lol surprised it's worn so quickly but i gather the torque is probably chewing it up, front is looking fine, do people mix tyre brands these days ? Not really fancying another Dunlop on the back.

    I don't and wouldn't recommend it unless your really skint or just using it for work plus a new set of tyres feels great compared to the shite you have on,you can get Michelin PR2s round my way fitted to loose wheels 170 plus at this time of year many tyre manufacturers have deals on like 30 off etc.

    Have a set of Michelin PR4's on the bike right now.
    Good tyres, especially in the wet.
    Wanted some Dunlop Road Smart 3 but non available at the time (in Singapore)
