The dunlops always gave me great front end feedback due to the stiffer sidewall... If you take both tires and stood them side by side you can collapse the michelin all the way to the ground with one hand and you can put all your weight with both hands on the dunlop and barely wrinkle the top of the tire... personal preference i guess but if you randomly put a michelin on my bike i would instantly notice after the first corner turn in...
Which Michelins?
