Pirelli diablo rosso iii

Hey guys,

Has anyone tried these as yet? While I had the bike at the tuner this week I started talking to the mechanic about tyres and he's recommended these. I was more in the market for SC's but I'm leaning towards these now purely based on the wet weather performance. I ride mostly twisties (canyons for the yanks) and the occasion track day.

He also said that 200/55/17's wouldn't be a good choice over the 190/55/17's because the tyre would 'pull in' to the rim when trying to fit on and therefore create a more curved shape, rather than a flatter shape like i'd imagined a 200 would.

Any feedback would be great! I have Pilot Power 3's on at the moment and hate them so they need to go.

Rsso III is a new tire on the market, not much feedback on it. So cannot help you there. There is one review by a magazine I read few months ago. Google is your friend.

For the twisties I like Bridgstone S21, or Metzler M7rr.
I like S21 a tad more. They grip better and provide better feedback. They do last less than M7RR (not much around 200-500 less) miles.

I moved from 190 tire to 200. I'll never go back. I mount 200 tire fine. Your guys is full of it

Rosso 3 are more of a touring type tyre. Better in the wet yes. But for twisties and track days there are certainly better tyres. I'd recommend Bridgestone S21 for sure.

How many miles do S21 last with you? I put ~2000 miles and 2 track days. Only about 30% tread left.

For moderate twisties pace I run R:38, F: 34 PSI. For aggressive twisties pace/ track I run R:32, F: 30

Yeah I've seen a lot of guys on here loving the Metzler's and also running the 200 rear tyre.. I can't fathom why this guy was nearly to the point of not selling me 200's because he thought they wouldn't fit properly?

I'm not fussed on mileage or price either, purely a performance based decision!

Rosso III reviews online seem to be promising so far

I bet the guy did not have 200 in stock lol

If you're doing mostly track, SPs cannot be beaten, but they suck in the wet/gravel on the street.

I ran M7s for 2-3 sets and they're good.

My favorite is S21s. Give them a shot. They're about the same price as M7s (no rebate).

@z00

Did you have to make any suspension adjustments between the S21 and M7RR?

I know we have talked about the RS-10's before. is the S21 a good alternative to them?

Were you guys running the 200 I'm guessing?

@z00 I run 36 front 42 rear. Standard road pressures. Never bother to lower them. Heaps of grip regardless. I get maybe 3,500kms - 5,000kms out of the S21. Commute and twisty runs. I run them til they are bald though. Have used S20 for years now on S21. I run 190 on my old 14 RR. New 16 will have Forged wheels so I'll be running 200's.

I've never taken my bike to track and have the original Supercorsa SPs. Is it weird that they have more than half their thread depth after some 9000km?
