Time for a new set of rubber and I am curious as to what you all think of the Dunlop Q3+ and the Q4.. I’m open to some other tire options as well. 2015 S1000RR.
How well are the Q4s in the wet? Or damp roads? I don’t ride much in we weather but sometimes it is unavoidable.I've become addicted to the Q4, and it's an expensive addiction given their poor longevity. I love the stick and feel. I'm on my fourth set since November, though one was cut short by a nail in the rear. Mitigating the expense of the addiction is the special deal I get from CSS stemming from their Dunlop sponsorship/partnership.
More reasonable street tires include the Q3+ and Bridgestone S22.
I really liked the S22 but I think I want to try out something different this go around. I ride this one on the street (aggressively) and I have another bike for the track.Depends on what you want. I have used Q3+, Q4, S22, M7, M9.
If it's all street riding, my favorite combo now is a sticky front (DOT race like cup evo or Pirelli TD), and a long lasting rear like Road 5.
I just mounted M9, they grip well, but even with just 500 miles on them it's clear they will barely make it to 2k miles. That's on my MT10.
I have close to 2500 miles on mine and I'm very impressed with them. Most of the milage on them has been in temps under 70 degree F. Not sure how they would last when it gets warmer out here but so far with the cooler weather in CT these tires warm up fast and they grip pretty well. I managed a 42 degree lean angle so far and average 35 degree angles. Keep in mind many of the back roads here are blind turns and no one knows how to drive. We also have a lot of wildlife that cross the roads. Haven't seen a cow crossing though.Has anyone ran the Michelin Power RS's?
