So as some may have seen from the pic game I need a new tire, I'm ordering one tomorrow but first I wanted some honest opinions on the longest lasting/reasonably priced tire....I don't have a lot of $$$ right now but what do you guys think?
I know some of you guys log in some serious miles, what tires do you run?
I don't have a feel for wear on them yet, but I'm now running a pair of Contimotions - I looked into them based on price, and because Cycleworld mentioned them as being good quality and cost-effective.
Hey Whip. I don't have a feel for wear on them yet, but I'm now running a pair of Contimotions - I looked into them based on price, and because Cycleworld mentioned them as being good quality and cost-effective.
Pilot Road 2- I get about 11K miles from a rear tire.
This I got 10k out of mine and sold the bike with them on. No squaring off and plenty of tred left.
Plus the 4 just came out so the 2 should be pretty cheap. I even did my first two track days on pilot road 2 with no issues. Granted it was novice pace but I was definitely one of the three fastest out there in novice and the tires were fine. Really good tire for the money.

Good luck, man. I've been running the front since the beginning of March, and the rear since the beginning of April. Did one 1,000km weekend on them. I've got nothing but good things to say about how they ride and feel, brake, turn in, etc. Hope you like them too.
Hey K1w1! Thanks again for the tip! so far I'm very happy with this tire, it was the easiest tire I've ever mounted, a little Simple Green to slick it up then a quick pop and the first side slipped right over the rim, then it just needed a couple shots with the tire tool and it was ready for air, it took longer to get the old one off!!
It does seem a bit soft, much more flexible than the others I've worked with(TWSS)....now let's see how long this puppy will last...
No way would I pay that much! I just put in a set of PR4s at $125 front and $168 rear from Rocky Mountain atv&mc. Great tires. Also pretty easy to mount.
Yea, I ordered a pr4 rear a month ago for $154 from Dennis Kirk
