On my track bike I run a 200/60, fits with enough clearance to get the tire warmers on/off with no problems. Run 190/55 on the street.

Don't buy the BT-016s....I got 6k on mine and they are toast.

Plenty of grip and take agressive riding very nicely. I didn't buy them for longevity, I want grip and more grip please.

Anybody tried the Maxxis Presa Sports? I just picked up a rear for cheap (couldn't turn it down) so when my Battlaxe is done that's what I'm going with. So now I'm searching for a front one to mate it with, but any suggestions for a suitable mate if I can't find one?

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound
