its time for some new tyres for my blade as there is a dunlop cheapo on the back and a bridgestone touring tyre on the front, both previous owner choice… i have no confidence in the rear what-so-ever and find myself not commiting to every corner like i should be… so whats the best tyres to go for?? i dont care how long they last as long as they are super sticky in both wet and dry!!
Just got a set of Dunlop Qualifier 2’s put on. Haven’t really had a chance to take them out properly, but they are soooooooooo much better than the originals. Heat up time is very quick, and as for stickiness - you should see the amount of crap they pick up…
Best price I found was just over £200 fitted at FWR - good service too.
Had Dunlop Qualifiers of some description on my R6 as OEM fitment, they were awful, especially the front which would slide if pushed hard, and gave a strange feeling of being flat on a few occasions (yes i had checked pressures).
Now running Michelin Power One 2CT(Road Spec). Nice feeling and feedback, but wont last long at all. Can deffo recommend them, but think i’ll be lucky to get 2000 miles on them as they feel like their made from Hubba Bubba.:w00t:
Have to say I’ve always preferred Michelins as i prefer the feel they give compared to any others i have tried. Though always found that their rears when well worn (but still legal) tend to slide a touch too easy, tho in a very predictable and easy to control way.
