The new Miche's are pretty good? I recently tried a set of the Pirrelli super bike track day tires. Not happy with them. They have too little grip, but they have lasted three track days @ middle of A group pace!!! Need a set that will last and have grip. Perhaps the Miche's will do the trick......
LOL. You're totally chasing your tail on that Luke.

Closest thing you'll get to that is the dragon supercorsas, but the profile isn't as aggressive as any of the newer tires.

Re: horrible rider.

yeah I know, but after 4 years of nothing but track riding, I'm tired of spending money on fake rubber that doesn't last. I am at that state where I am trying many new things to see what works and what doesn't. The Pirrelli superbike track day tires, don't cut it and I'm certain after what I saw with other slower riders the new stoners won't work either. If I can find a set of tires in the $400 range that can keep up with me I would be happy. If I can get 2 track days out of them I am happy. I have only been getting one day out of most of the ones I have tried.

yup, ntec's (uk) are $550+ a set now.
yes. the Michelin power CUP tires are awesome. Am i biased? yea.. but i have a some fairly convincing posts/threads regarding them in this forum. They are worth a try. I don't bullshi t you, my friends, or anyone else about them. The pirelli's are very good to, but you will HAVE to use the uk ntec to have as good a tire as the new michelin CUP tires.

Silkolene, JenningsGP, Engine Ice, Sharkskinz, Pit-Bull
