Re: Pirelli Diablo's Opinions...

Hey Tommy, how much better are the Rosso Corsa's compared to the DC3's? I had DC3's on my bike when I first got it and I liked them, but then when I got a flat, I switched over to Pilot Road 2's because I was just riding street and wanted the longevity.

My bike is basically track only now and thinking about purchasing more sport oriented tires next Spring to replace the sport touring tires. I'm thinking either S20's, Power Pures, or Rosso Corsas.

All three of those tires are great, pick the one that is the cheapest.

I did the research back in June when looking for a set. S20s were the cheapest ($220 shipped for the set) so I scooped a set of those. Ive been very satisfied.

Yea I'm leaning mostly towards S20's right now. I did like the Diablo Corsa 3's, so I'm sure the Rosso Corsa's are even better.

Go with the Supercorsa SP's!

And then enjoy a fluid transition over to the race compound SC's!

I haven't even done a trackday yet in my life(Spring time is so far away......sigh) so those would be super duper over kill! . I'm just going to use the Pilot Road 2's for the first couple of times out on the track since I'll be slow as balls and then get one of those tires I mentioned above later on.

Re: Pirelli Diablo's Opinions...

Op I wouldn't get those tires. A friend got a set of those from cycle gear when they were 200 and he hates them. Now the sc's are different
