I'd be curious to see how the Pirelli's hold up under the same conditions. Sustained high speed around the 200 mark generates a lot of heat. Treaded street tires aren't really designed for this kind of riding.

I see pics of tires(on here)that are obviously 'well done'.Curious...what kind of corners and speeds are some of you doing to get these tires as they look.I say this because I roll through sweepers and tighter stuff at over 100 MPH...leaned in pretty good.My tires have NEVER looked like some of these.Been running the stock tire and haven't seen anything even approaching these pics.

My question is this, what will longer lasting higher mileage tires deliver for grip ? High sides at high speed are not my idea of fun, the margin for error is thin enough with the sensitive throttle, but add a tire that can't hook up is worse.

175+ for 25+ miles straight several times over and over is my guess

But I'm sure onearm can verify lol he'll cross out 175 and insert 190 lol

Yup Rhody...I considered that.Most definitely.That's the reason I stayed with the factory tires...except the last two...I put 190/55's on there.But still the same virtually...s-20's.Just have to see I guess...after this last one is done...which shouldn't be too long
