    Default What tire brand do you run?

    I have for years just ran HD Dunlops. On the chop I ran Avons, the rocket had Michilin Pilot Powers...

    But let's just discuss what you run now...

    Vote on what you run now and post us why.

    Just bought my third pair of Michelin Pilot Road 2CTs. Great handling, no ass-puckering surprises, 8K+ treadware. I thought about the PR3s and PR4s but have seen them do weird wear/cupping patterns on the front tires.

    Ran Bridgestone S20s and they were good - good grip, good ride, bad mileage. So running Michelin PR4s now and they are BAD ASS.

    I believe Dunlop is the only company making rubber for Agitator rims, but I could be wrong. I got my front replaced in a bit of a hurry (D408F, I think), I'd like to see if Dunlop American Elites are available for these rims

    Switched the stock Dunlops out for metzler 888's. 2k miles on them and i like them so far. Review were pretty positive from most of the sites and forums i checked so I decided to take a chance on them. The handling is better than the stock tires i replaced, but im going to hold off final judgement until i see how many miles i get out of them.

    Yeah I had to correct my statement... dunlops on the HD... been thru 834 sets for reasons I can't mention. They are good. Decent grip wet and dry, mileage seems decent so I'm not sure what people complaign about with the HD dunlops.
