16 inch tires

I'm rebuilding the top end of a 250 ninja and would like to take it over to
Gingerman Raceway for their open track days. It seems that there are few choices in 16 inch tires. Any recommendations??

I had an unpleasant experience with a set of pirelli tires. And they did not
seem to care about resolving it.This was with the Demon Sports.So I would
prefer to not give them any more money.

Sport Demons are good tires and they come in 16". I don't know anyone who's made the converstion to 17" wheels with any success. Send a whisper to FOG on that site. He knows everything there is to know about EX's.

I ran thru a couple of sets of Perelli Sport Demons. Loved them.

Let us know how the lil Ninja does on the track. I have a friend who is thinking about putting his Ninja on the track at Putnam.
