Don't quote me, but maybe this has been discussed. Did you try searching for *tires*?

https://www.rc51forums.com/forums/sea...archid=2349993



EDIT: https://www.rc51forums.com/forums/sea...archid=2351649

https://tinyurl.com/o3k75u9

(very wierd, somehow my original link changed itself into a bad link )

Second EDIT: ok - apparently a search url is temporary. Seems they only las a few hours before they go stale. *Sorry. No matches found.*

Didn't you just start another "tire thread" you might as well start an oil one too.

Hey!
I just scored a set of S20's for $278 shipped! 120/70 & 190/55.
Should be here next week sometime. Just in time to scrub 'em in next weekend!

why would you want to go to a 60 in the front?

i am thoroughly happy with my pilot road two, although i only have one on the rear. ive read guys getting 10k miles with a rear. i said impossible. i now have close to 2k on it, and it looks damn near new.

dry grip, and wet grip isnt sacrificed either. i ride my bike pretty hard, so i'll probably be sticking with these tires in the future

Are you becoming a tire whore? Did you not get in on the Dunlop deal too? Or did I make a mistake....and owe you an apology.
