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
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
@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.
